Buffalo, NY

  EAI presents a special program of video at Squeaky Wheel in Buffalo. Beyond the superficial connections of these videos - all made by men, all dating from the late 70s to early 80s - there is a provocative commonality in their expressionist use of video to portray an anti-hero (in most cases the artist himself), suffering an amplified cultural milieu. The program included works by Tony Oursler, Klaus vom Bruch, Ante Bozanich, Tony Labat, and Mike Smith.

Squeaky Wheel is an artist run non-profit media arts center founded in 1985 to promote and support film, video, computer, and audio art by media artists and community members.
