Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) and Dia Art Foundation will pay tribute to Mike Kelley with a daylong screening of his remarkable video works, many of which were created with collaborators such as Paul McCarthy and Michael Smith. This twelve-hour program, presented in coordination with Kelley Studio Inc. and the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, will include the screening of such seminal work as The Banana Man (1983); Heidi (1992), made in collaboration with Paul McCarthy; Superman Recites Selections from 'The Bell Jar' and Other Works by Sylvia Plath (1999); Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstruction #1 (Domestic Scene) (2000); Day Is Done, Part 1 (2005–2006); as well as the recent work A Voyage of Growth And Discovery (2011), made in collaboration with Michael Smith.

Mike Kelley (1954–2012) was one of the most influential and transgressive artists of the second half of the 20th century. His work interrogates the American psyche by subverting depictions of social practices and rituals, including the role of religion, authority, adolescence, sexual identity, and gender. Kelley was also an inspired, eccentric thinker and writer who provided support and encouragement to countless artists and collaborators.
