Joan Jonas Knowledge Base: Launch Event and Virtual Program

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) and Dia Art Foundation

www.eai.org

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to present an online exhibition of Joan Jonas's early video works, complementing the launch of NYU's Joan Jonas Knowledge Base (JJKB), an open source digital resource housing generous information about the New York-based artist. This screening program, freely accessible through October 25th, features key early videos by the artist, and a reel of unedited footage from Organic Honey's Visual Telepathy (1972), providing a rare insight into Jonas's process and precise orchestrations for camera. Works included here highlight the artist's pioneering explorations into the phenomenology of video as mirror (Left Side Right Side, Glass Puzzle, and Disturbances), and meditative portraits of landscape and memory (Barking, Merlo, and I Want to Live in the Country). Also included is documentation from the October 15th launch event hosted by Dia Art Foundation (RSVP here), featuring an introduction to the JJKB by project directors Barbara Clausen, Deena Engel, Lozana Rossenova, and Glenn Wharton, and a discussion among the artist, EAI director Rebecca Cleman, and Haus der Kunst director Andrea Lissoni. Explore the Joan Jonas Knowledge Base here. To learn more about the Joan Jonas exhibition open now at Dia Beacon, visit their website.

EAI at 50 at Metrograph: October

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to partner with Metrograph to present a series of programs highlighting our catalogue and its essential role in the history of artists’ moving image work. This program coincides with our ongoing celebration of EAI's 50th anniversary.

Beginning this month with a series of works complimenting Metrograph's Lives of Performers, a program probing titles that move between "the clarifying spectacle of the stage and the complexities of life outside of the spotlight," EAI presents a slate of works for both Metrograph's theater as well as its At Home online platform. Screening at Metrograph, catch theatrical engagements of Ellen Cantor's sprawling Pinochet Porn (2008-16); Charles Atlas's fictionalized profile of dancer Michael Clark, Hail the New Puritan (1987); and Mike Kelley's Mobile Homestead (2012), a documentary of his reconstructed childhood home's journey, as it travels down Michigan Avenue to be installed at Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit (MOCAD). On their streaming platform, watch supplemental programs showcasing Ellen Cantor's diaristic appropriations of classic cinema and a collection of ebullient artists' videos by Atlas, Cheryl Donegan, Kalup Linzy, and Jacolby Satterwhite.

In-person theatrical screenings will take place at Metrograph at 7 Ludlow Street. Proof of a COVID-19 vaccine is required for entry, and a face mask or covering is required for all guests at all times. Online screenings are viewable through Metrograph's membership-based At Home streaming platform, with access beginning at $5/month.
