EAI is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2011 with a year of special programming. For Artprojx Cinema, EAI presents a screening program featuring some of the newest additions to its extensive collection of artists' video. Spanning five decades of rigorous artistic practice and groundbreaking experimentation, EAI's vast archive of media art continues to grow each year, embracing both important historical works and adventurous new works by young artists. The hour-long program features works newly added to the EAI archive by a multi-generational group of artists including Jaime Davidovich, Andrew Lampert, Kristin Lucas, Cynthia Maughan, Takeshi Murata and Martha Rosler.
Artprojx Cinema is a new collaborative venture with The Armory Show and VOLTA NY, a screening program of over 80 artists' films and videos from over 40 galleries participating at the fairs and leading international public arts organizations and curators.
