EAI hosted a special evening devoted to the New York-based experimental theater and media ensemble The Wooster Group. For over thirty years, this company of artists has explored the interplay between media and live performance, transgressing traditions of theater and dance on stage while also experimenting with single-channel video and media installations. A screening of selections from the group's theatrical productions and videos -- many of them rarely seen -- was followed by a conversation between Wooster Group director and co-founder Elizabth LeCompte and Hilton Als, Theater Critic for The New Yorker.

EAI presented a series of free public video programs as part of the exhibition, Terrorvision at Exit Art. Terrorvision was a multidisciplinary arts project that examined how definitions of terror are shaped by individual and collective visions, experiences, memories and histories. This exhibition explored how personal, spiritual and physical events influence our notions of terror and how these unforgettable moments - and the cultural and media artifacts that represent them - have come to define our most extreme fears. Works by The Wooster Group, Martha Rosler, and Peggy Ahwesh were screened in the video programs.
