Cecelia Condit: Early and Recent Works
Screen Slate twitch.tv/screenslate

Thursday, May 21, 2020
8:00 pm EST

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to partner with Screen Slate to present a career-spanning screening and live Q&A with artist Cecelia Condit.

Cecelia Condit (born 1947, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American artist working in video and photography. Since 1981, Condit produces films that swing between beauty and the grotesque, innocence and cruelty. In the psychological landscape of contemporary fairy tales, Condit’s videos put a subversive spin on the traditional mythology of women in film and the psychology of sexuality and violence. Exploring the dark side of female subjectivity, her “feminist fairy tales” focus on friendships, violence, age, and childhood.

Possibly in Michigan (1983, 12 min)
Beneath the Skin (1981, 12 min)
Not a Jealous Bone (1987, 10 min)
We Were Hardly More Than Children Pulling Up Roots (2015, 8 min)
I've Been Afraid (2020, 7 min)

After the screening, Condit will join for a live Q&A moderated by EAI Technical Director and Screen Slate editor Jon Dieringer. More info here.
 
TerrorVision:
Spine-Tingling Signals from the EAI Vault
Electronic Arts intermix (EAI) 535 W. 22nd St. 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

Wednesday, October 28, 2015
6:30 pm

EAI presented a seasonally themed free screening of macabre media digging through the tropes of horror cinema. Although narrative, genre, and lurid popular entertainment may seem an unlikely source of inspiration for artists' media, the grotesque—and specifically its situation within the televisual dimension—has crept into approaches as varied as the diary video, direct-camera performance, film/video hybrid, and datamosh.

By dissecting and reanimating the themes and situations of horror film and television, artists such as Peggy Ahwesh, Michael Smith, Cynthia Maughan, Cecilia Condit, Tony Oursler, and George Kuchar offer a subversive post-mortem on the syntax and politics of the genre while offering a glimpse of the unknown, mysterious, and shocking that lurk at the video signal's outer limits.
