"Edited at EAI": 1972-77
Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) 535 W. 22nd St. 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

Wednesday, April 27, 2016
Noon - 8pm

As part of EAI's ongoing 45th anniversary celebrations, we launched a series of screenings that highlight an under-recognized but historically important and creatively fertile area of our programs: EAI's Editing Facility for artists. Established in 1972 with early 1/2" open reel editing equipment, EAI's facility was one of the first such post-production workspaces for artists in the U.S. Over five decades, an extraordinary group of artists has used EAI's facility to create some of the most significant works in media art's diverse histories. The first screening, which featured an eclectic selection of works from the 1970s, charted the alternative artistic, political, and cultural expressions of artists experimenting with emergent video editing technologies and strategies.

Panel and Screening

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) hosted a panel and screening in conjunction with the exhibition Videofreex: The Art of Guerrilla Television at The Dorsky Museum, organized by Andrew Ingall. This event emphazized the bold interdisciplinary nature of the collective's projects, with a special focus on Videofreex founding member David Cort, who edited several of his key video works at EAI in the 1970s. Selections of Cort's video work, representing his use of video as an interactive tool for electronic imaging exploration, provided a catalyst for the panel discussion. Panelists included original Videofreex member Davidson Gigliotti, artist and Cort collaborator Shalom Gorewitz, and LoVid, a media art duo who represent a new generation of artists who have been influenced by the interdisciplinary practices of Cort and the Videofreex.

Dia Art Foundation presented Circa 1971: Early Video & Film from the EAI Archive at Dia:Beacon, Riggio Galleries. Circa 1971 brought together 20 moving image works from EAI's collection of over 3,500 media artworks. Celebrating EAI's 40th anniversary, the exhibition was organized by guest curator Lori Zippay, Executive Director of EAI.

Circa 1971 included pieces by Vito Acconci, Eleanor Antin, Ant Farm, John Baldessari, Lynda Benglis, Shirley Clarke, Dan Graham, Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson, Joan Jonas, Gordon Matta-Clark, Nam June Paik, Raindance, Anthony Ramos, Carolee Schneemann, TVTV, Steina and Woody Vasulka, and others.

Taking the year of EAI's founding as its point of departure, the exhibition set in dialogue a series of diverse works created in and around 1971, which are linked by alternative artistic and activist impulses. Circa 1971 exposed the generative encounters among these artists and influences and initiates unexpected correspondences between seemingly disparate works.

This was the first program in ALL CIRCUITS ON, a series produced in collaboration with Anthology Film Archives. Exploring both institutions' archives, the series presents rarely-screened works from the early days of video art. The first program looked at early artists' experiments with television. Works in the program examined at how television and video work, presented new ways of critiquing the medium, and proposed new uses for the technology. Viewers learned how video can be used as a tool, for the freeing of information and the creation of a healthy media ecology.
