CHARLES ATLAS AND ANTONY'S
YOU ARE MY SISTER (TURNING):
Times Square Midnight Moment

Times Square

New York, NY

December 1-30, 2014
every night from 11:57 pm–midnight

EAI is pleased to partner with the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts to present Charles Atlas and Antony's You Are My Sister (TURNING). Atlas and Antony have joined forces to create this special remix, which will be shown on Times Square's electronic billboards from 11:57 pm to midnight each night in December leading up to New Year's Eve, as part of Midnight Moment. For Times Square, Atlas has created a special remix of his vivid, multi-dimensional video portraits of women, which were originally processed and projected live as part of TURNING, a performance collaboration with Antony. In the live performances, Atlas' video visualization was paired with Antony's song "You Are My Sister," and his images mirror the lyrics' powerful message of strength, sisterhood, and transcendence.

 

SCREEN PLAY:
Moving Image Art

The Sagamore Hotel

1671 Collins Avenue
Miami, Florida

On view during Art Basel Miami Beach
December 2014

Join EAI at The Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach for 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, which was guest curated by Lori Zippay, EAI's Executive Director, brings together video, film, and digital artworks drawn from the EAI collection across six decades. These works highlight 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 will encounter 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 features 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.
