Moving Image Art
The Sagamore Hotel 1671 Collins Avenue
Miami, Florida

On view during Art Basel Miami Beach
December, 2014 - March, 2015

EAI and The Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach presented Screen Play: Moving Image Art, a special exhibition of moving image artworks for the public spaces of the hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach. Screen Play, guest curated by Lori Zippay, EAI's Executive Director, brought together video, film, and digital artworks drawn from the EAI collection across six decades. These works highlighted the cross-disciplinary relation of the moving image to other artistic media and forms—performance, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture—while also exploring the distinctive vocabularies of video, film, and digital media. The public encountered artists' moving image works in multiple public spaces of the hotel, as well as a dedicated "EAI TV Channel" for the hotel guest rooms. Screen Play featured moving image works by artists including Michael Bell-Smith, Takeshi Murata, Leslie Thornton, Jacolby Satterwhite, Joan Jonas, Merce Cunningham, Alex Hubbard, Dara Birnbaum, Shana Moulton, Lawrence Weiner, Steina, and John Baldessari.

Artist Talk
Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) 535 W. 22nd St. 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

6:30 pm

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) presented an artist talk and conversation with multi-disciplinary artist Jacolby Satterwhite. In dynamic video works that bring together 3-D animation, drawings, and live performance elements, Satterwhite explores themes of memory, desire, personal and public mythology. Creating fantastical digital landscapes that are populated with multiple costumed avatars of himself, Satterwhite engages with hand-drawn objects and text as extensions of the body, in a seamless exchange between live performance and constructed worlds. Satterwhite screened new works in progress and discussed his practice and process in performance and digital animation, followed by a question-and-answer session moderated by artist and writer Carolyn Lazard. This event launched EAI's distribution of Satterwhite's moving image work.
