EAI was pleased to present a special screening and conversation with pioneering media artist Anthony Ramos at Light Industry, Brooklyn. Ramos was among the first generation of artists to use video as a tool for a critique of mass media, and for giving agency to marginalized individuals and communities. In his potent but rarely seen video works of the 1970s, Ramos sought to combine art and activism. At Light Industry, Ramos introduced his video About Media and a selection of excerpts from his work in video. Following the screening, Ramos appeared in conversation with EAI's Rebecca Cleman and took questions from the audience.
