Television as an exhibition space is a project that attempts to contaminate the television medium of contemporary artistic content. It is a shared reflection with other artists about the importance and possibilities of television (a domestic device that allows to reach so many people to communicate the ideas that are exposed there) as support. Therefore it is, essentially, to introduce and underline the notion of exhibition space at the time of referring to television, see it as a simple container, a cubic canvas, an intervention box. Claiming the television medium as artistic support to experiment with and in it and fill it with cultural content.

TVEE was created by Miniature (Adelaida Lamas, Roger Amat) in its artistic residence in Hangar, and premiered its broadcast through La Xarxa during 2011 without prior notice or explanation to the audience. During that year, artists and creators of any discipline were invited to act as a cultural agents on public television, with a new audience and without any censorship in the ideas or messages that they would like to develop in their pieces, in which the contents were the capital value, above the format (a white cube). As a result TVEE brought together more than twenty contemporary and emerging artists, and produced more than 30 audiovisual works.
