Barbara Hammer: Artist Talk and Screening

Electronic Arts Intermix
535 W 22nd St., Fifth Floor

Tickets: $7, $5 students, free for members.

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to present an evening with Barbara Hammer, organized on the occasion of Barbara Hammer: Evidentiary Bodies, a major retrospective at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art and venues throughout New York City. Hammer’s work over five decades is pioneering for its focus on lesbian desire and relationships, and also for its extraordinary formal innovations across media. This screening and artist talk at EAI will formally launch EAI's distribution of Hammer’s moving-image work, and will spotlight the artist’s use of video, early computer animations, and an Internet-based project.

Following the screening, Hammer will be in dialogue with film and media curator Sally Berger, and will give a demonstration of her Internet project, which offered individuals a communal, anonymous platform for expressing and sustaining lesbian desire and identity—a vital and nurturing endeavor that is in keeping with Hammer’s tremendous influence and contribution.
