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 elctronic 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. This will mark the first time that a Midnight Moment will also be available to the public online with audio.

EAI is pleased to present an artist talk and conversation with emerging, multi-disciplinary artist Jacolby Satterwhite. In dynamic video works that bring together 3-D animation, drawings, and live performative elements, Satterwhite explores themes of memory, desire, personal and public mythology. Populating his digital realms with multiple avatars of himself dressed in elaborate cyborgian costumes, he engages with the drawn objects as extensions of the body. At EAI, Satterwhite will screen new works in progress and discuss his practice and process in performance and digital animation, followed by a question and answer session with the audience. This event launches EAI's distribution of Satterwhite's moving image work.
