EAI is pleased to present Mary Lucier's Selected Works 1975-2000, three newly restored and compiled programs that bring together eleven of the artist's major video works. Organized chronologically, these programs trace the essential themes that distinguish Lucier's work over three decades, from her earliest experiments with video technology to her lyrical visual narratives and explorations of light and landscape. These programs provide an invaluable overview to the development of Lucier's artistic practice.

Program 3: The 1990s and Beyond: Figure and Ground features Lucier's installation and single-channel video works from the last decade. These works integrate elements such as nature, dance and language to investigate themes of vulnerability, culpability and strength. MASS (between a rock and a hard place) fuses dance with architectural images, while Noah's Raven juxtaposes human and environmental vulnerabilty. In Summer, or Grief, light-filled images are undermined by the dark implications of the text. Portrait: John Lado Keni gives voice to the unique language of a refugee who has been deaf since birth.
