DESCRIPTION

Tele-novela

 

Curated by Robyn Farrell

 

September 1 – October 31, 2015

 

Tele-novela is a genre of limited-run drama series popular on Latin American, Portuguese, and Spanish television networks. The term combines tele, short for televisión or televisão (Spanish and Portuguese words for television), and novela, a Spanish and Portuguese word for “novel”. Symbolic, social, or technological, Tele-novela mimics the serial and structural nature of the pop cultural programs, but moves from linear story to abstracted narrative, and experimental play by electronic means. Arranged in three-part acts and ranging in media–video, sound, animated GIFs–and durational formats, the sequential productions on ACRE TV present a departure from their operatic tradition in favor of abstracted realities and dispersed fictions that simultaneously explore and avoid the notion of formal narrative on screen.
