Target Video (aka TargetVideo77) is a San Francisco-based studio, founded by artist Joe Rees, who, collaborating with Jackie Sharp, Jill Hoffman, Sam Edwards, and others, archived early art performances and punk and hardcore bands on video and film. Performers and artists as diverse as the Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, The Screamers, The Cramps, William S. Burroughs, The Clash, Avengers, Mark Pauline, Survival Research Labs, The Go-Go’s, John Cooper Clarke, Bauhaus, X, The Dils, Johanna Went, Talking Heads, Black Flag, Flipper, and Crucifix were recorded in the late 1970s to the early 1980s. Using multiple cameras, they produced some of the highest quality footage available of these bands performing in front of live audiences. In addition, videos often included interviews with members of the bands.
Experience these videos through a happenings-type atmosphere as an installation on March 19, or during the course of the SFAQ [Project] Space on the video jukebox in the video café.
