EAI pays tribute to Jaime Davidovich (1936-2016) with a daylong screening of video works by the pioneering conceptual artist. Working with video, installation, and local cable television programming, Davidovich was a major and influential figure in the vanguard of individuals and groups exploring art in the context of mass media. The screening will include a selection of key works, including episodes of the cable access program The Live! Show (1979-1984), which Davidovich hosted in the guise of his buoyant TV alter-ego, Dr. Videovich.

Multiple works will be scheduled throughout the day, with a short break at 3:00pm. A special toast will take place at 6:00pm, followed by a screening of Adventures of the Avant-Garde (1981) and Outreach: The Changing Role of the Art Museum (1977), a collaboration with art critic Gregory Battcock, at 6:30pm.

All Circuits On Presents:

ALL CIRCUITS ON, a screening series co-produced by Anthology Film Archives and Electronic Arts Intermix, celebrated Jaime Davidovich's unique approach to art and television with Adventures of the Avant-Garde, an eye-popping art-historical tour through the golden days of television and radical art in the 20th century. Bridging the divide between asceticism and philistinism, parody and homage, Adventures presented an exuberant career-spanning vision summing up Davidovich's iconoclastic view of video art, characterized by a statement by Marcel Duchamp: "I've been in it the whole time and I sill want to get rid of it."

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to participate in The 2008 New York Art Book Fair. EAI will present a special program of videos that considers issues of access, circulation and obsolescence. The program explores "out of print" art and media, in the form of limited edition videos, site-specific installations, Internet searches, one-off broadcasts, and ephemeral actions and performances that exist only as documents or artifacts.

Dr. Videovich, also known as Jaime Davidovich, got in on the video scene in the early 1970s. His television apotheosis was as Dr. Videovich, host of the weekly variety program THE LIVE! SHOW, which featured interviews, opinions and performances with real and invented personalities from the art world, along with live call-ins, art lessons, and the Video Shop, which sold television-related kitsch. Davidovich will be live, screening a specially prepared collection of rare grooves.

Organized by Rebecca Cleman (EAI) & Andrew Lampert (Anthology), ALL CIRCUITS ON is a collaborative series of Anthology Film Archives and EAI. It is funded by Experimental Television Center's Presentation Funds, which is supported by public funds from the Electronic Media and Film Program of the New York State Council on the Arts.
