Legion TV is a project space run by Kiera Blakey & Matthew-Robert Hughes, situated within a larger complex of studio spaces and workshops in Dalston, London. Through the project they have been producing a programme of simultaneous gallery and online exhibitions since late 2012, comprised almost entirely of newly commissioned work. Focused on producing commissions, there is a developmental aspect to their work. This can be seen from the long-term conversations from which shows are often developed; but also in terms of encouraging artists to work outside of their comfort zone, for example with the artist Samara Scott, though she hadn’t worked online before Kiera says they felt her work would translate well into an online context. By working with their in-house programmer, the collaboration enabled Scott to realise her work in a completely new setting. Kiera talked about the project itself as a “testing ground”, a space where artists can try out ideas before a larger show - the recent exhibition by Julia Crabtree & William Evans, Hyper Bole, is preceding a larger exhibition at another London-based gallery later in the year. So, it can function as a relatively safe site for experimentation. Legion TV functions like a rung within the wider ecology of the contemporary art world - with an ongoing commissioned online project by Yuri Pattison going on to be presented in New York.
