EAI celebrated the publication of Running n Chanting n Falling n Ranting, a new 257-page book by artist, composer and musician Charlemagne Palestine. Focusing on Palestine's extraordinary body of performance videos from the early 1970s to the present, this artist book featured an interview between Palestine and Serpentine curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, an introduction by EAI Executive Director Lori Zippay, and 204 images from his video works. During the launch event, EAI screened Where It's Coming From (1977, 56:50), an extended video conversation between Palestine and Wies Smals that becomes a performance in its own right. The event concluded with a short surprise performance by Palestine.
