Artists' Video from EAI at the Sagamore Hotel in Miami
The Sagamore Hotel 1671 Collins Avenue
Miami, Florida

On view during Art Basel Miami Beach
December, 2015

The special selection of media artworks for the public spaces of the Sagamore Hotel was drawn from EAI's extensive archive. The media artworks on display in the hotel presented formal, conceptual, or perceptual transformations of natural landscapes and environments. In works that range from the playful to the socially resonant, the artists investigate diverse notions of landscape, from transmutations of nature, the body, and everyday objects to the "media landscape" of today's televisual and digital cultures. Moving between abstraction and representation, the organic and the electronic, these works—which span five decades—also explore the materiality and meanings of video and digital media.

EAI Summer Screening
EAI 535 West 22nd Street, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

Wednesday, August 11, 2010, 6:30 pm

EAI celebrated the art of short-form video and film with a summer screening of works that clock in at two minutes or less. Between Yoko Ono's fifteen second Eye Blink (1966) and Leslie Thornton's two minute Let Me Count the Ways: Minus 6 (2006), the forty-five works in this forty-five minute screening demonstrated why a concise statement is so powerful. Ranging from analog video abstraction to quick visual comedy, conceptual exercises to formal experiments with duration, commissioned public service announcements to critiques of the quintessential short-form structure, the TV commercial, the works in this screening demonstrated the enormous possibilities that artists have found in less than one hundred and twenty seconds.

The screening included works by Dan Asher, Beth B, Phyllis Baldino, Michael Bell-Smith, Dara Birnbaum, Cheryl Donegan, VALIE EXPORT, Forcefield, Matthew Geller, Gran Fury, Gary Hill, Ken Jacobs, Tom Kalin, Kalup Linzy, George Maciunas, Charlotte Moorman, Shana Moulton, Yoko Ono, Dennis Oppenheim, Nam June Paik, Martha Rosler, Paul Sharits, Stuart Sherman, Shelly Silver, Michael Smith, Leslie Thornton, Steina and Woody Vasulka, Lawrence Weiner and Bruce and Norman Yonemoto.
