Dia & EAI Members' Event: Featuring Lawrence Weiner
Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) 535 West 22nd Street, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

Wednesday, February 8, 2017
6:30pm

Dia Art Foundation and Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) are pleased to present a special members' screening featuring two moving image works by Lawrence Weiner.

Lawrence Weiner's moving image works extend his signature conceptual and language-based practice into cinematic and digital realms. Blue Moon Over explores language through animated “motion drawings” and text fragments. Restored with a new video transfer in 2011, Altered to Suit is an experimental 'day in the life of' narrative, as told through playfully dissonant image, dialogue, and sound.

SHORT SHORTS
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.
