Daylong Tribute Screening at EAI

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)
535 West 22nd Street, 5th floor New York, NY 10011
Friday, October 4, 2013 noon - 6pm

EAI paid tribute to pioneering intermedia artist and filmmaker Jud Yalkut (1938-2013) with a daylong celebration of his extraordinary moving image art. EAI screened twenty of Yalkut's short film and video pieces, spanning the years 1965 to 2002, from early performance renderings and poetic filmic experiments to his groundbreaking video-film collaborations with Nam June Paik.

Paik and Yalkut's iconic video-film hybrids, including Videotape Study No. 3, Beatles Electroniques and Cinema Metaphysique, were shown together with Yalkut's kinetic reworkings of seminal performances and art events, including his visions of the 1966 and 1969 Avant-Garde Festivals; his vibrant 16mm film of the landmark 1969 exhibition TV as a Creative Medium; a 1973 video realization of Paik and Charlotte Moorman performing John Cage's 26'.1.1499" for String Player; and his digital rendering of László Moholy-Nagy's 1930 sculpture Light-Space Modulator, among others.
