Forty short videos and films by forty artists—one work for every year between 1971 and 2011—will be screened, all drawn from EAI's extensive archive of media-based art. 40 Artists/40 Works/40 Years begins with iconic early works by artists such as Joan Jonas, John Baldessari, the Vasulkas and Charlotte Moorman and concludes in the 2000s with pieces by artists including Cory Arcangel, Shana Moulton, Seth Price, and Takeshi Murata: a time-lapse portrait of moving-image art evolving across four decades. 40 Artists/40 Works/40 Years will screen continuously during the fair in MoMA PS1's basement video vault.
