and EAI present an evening of video by Lynda
Benglis, an eminent sculptor and videomaker for more than three decades.
Immediate and visceral, her work boldly confronts issues of body, gender
and image. The screening includes the rarely seen The Amazing Bow
Wow (1976, color, 32 min), the tragi-comic tale of an extraordinarily
talented and gendered dog.
