On the occasion of the Liverpool Biennial, members of artist collective Paper Rad will present a special program of video works that they selected from EAIÍs major collection of media art. The program will include an animated introduction and conclusion created by Paper Rad specifically for this screening. Paper Rad synthesizes popular material from television, video games, and advertising, reprogramming these references with an exuberantly neo-primitivist digital aesthetic. The EAI collection features over 3,000 new and historical media works by 175 artists.
