About Pleasure Dome:
Pleasure Dome is an exhibition collective dedicated to the presentation of artists' moving images. Since the fall of 1989, Pleasure Dome has presented diverse experimental media arts, as such we strive to nurture an appreciation for artists’ moving images in ways which are accessible, engaging and challenging, and balance our exhibition priorities to include: current practices, historical traditions, and works which are shown infrequently due to genre or format, or because their creators have traditionally been denied access to wide-spread exhibition.

About Trinity Square Video:
Trinity Square Video is a space to re-imagine media arts that aims to meaningfully engage diverse creative voices through its accessible production, post-production and exhibition support. Trinity Square Video champions an evolving definition of video by presenting challenging contemporary art that inspires its members and audiences to expand their understanding of media art. We strive to create a supportive environment, encouraging artistic and curatorial experimentation with video that challenges notions of medium specificity and advances media art as a creative discipline.
