To mark the publication of Capricious's ELLEN CANTOR: I’m Still Coming, EAI and Capricious present a screening of film and video work by artists originally featured in Cantor’s groundbreaking 1993 exhibition Coming to Power: 25 Years of Sexually X-Plicit Art by Women. Cantor’s own video work will screen, along with film and video by Peggy Ahwesh, Cheryl Dunye, Barbara Hammer, and Carolee Schneemann. An informal talk with I’m Still Coming editors and co-curators of the 2016 re-staging of Coming to Power, Pati Hertling and Julie Tolentino, about late friend, artist and provocateur Cantor will follow – taking in their own 2016 re-staging of her Coming to Power exhibition, their new publication, performances, archival materials, and feminist writers – then and now. They will be joined by contributing writers Ashton Cooper, Clara López Menéndez, Amalle Dublon & Constantina Zavitsanos, and Vivian Crockett.
