Moving Image Art
The Sagamore Hotel 1671 Collins Avenue
Miami, Florida

On view during Art Basel Miami Beach
December, 2014 - March, 2015

EAI and The Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach presented Screen Play: Moving Image Art, a special exhibition of moving image artworks for the public spaces of the hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach. Screen Play, guest curated by Lori Zippay, EAI's Executive Director, brought together video, film, and digital artworks drawn from the EAI collection across six decades. These works highlighted the cross-disciplinary relation of the moving image to other artistic media and forms—performance, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture—while also exploring the distinctive vocabularies of video, film, and digital media. The public encountered artists' moving image works in multiple public spaces of the hotel, as well as a dedicated "EAI TV Channel" for the hotel guest rooms. Screen Play featured moving image works by artists including Michael Bell-Smith, Takeshi Murata, Leslie Thornton, Jacolby Satterwhite, Joan Jonas, Merce Cunningham, Alex Hubbard, Dara Birnbaum, Shana Moulton, Lawrence Weiner, Steina, and John Baldessari.

EAI is pleased to present a screening and artist talk with Alex Hubbard, whose signature videos involve carefully choreographed and dynamically composed studio experimentation with objects, paint, comedic timing and destruction.

Hubbard will premiere two new short videos that depart from familiar territory, projecting his ideas beyond the studio. These new works are sketches for a larger feature-length project, currently in development with curator and writer Jay Sanders and playwright Richard Maxwell. The program also features studio-based videos made within the last year, including Hit Wave (2012), Eat Your Friends (2012), and Bottom of the Top (2012), as well as earlier works and rarely seen experiments.

Hubbard will be present to speak about his work and future plans, concluding with a Q&A with the audience.
