EAI's "Edited at EAI" series continues with a special event featuring media artist Dara Birnbaum in conversation with former EAI editors Matt Danowski, Pat Ivers, and Ann Volkes, moderated by Lori Zippay. Birnbaum, one of the most important and influential artists working in video and multi-media installation, will discuss the creative processes surrounding analogue video editing and EAI's "laboratory-studio" atmosphere of the early 1980s with those editors whom she worked with at EAI. A selection of Birnbaum's video works from that period, including Pop-Pop Video: Kojak/Wang (1980), the rarely seen New Music Shorts (1981), with musicians Radio Fire Fight and Glenn Branca), Remy/Grand Central: Trains and Boats and Planes (1980), Fire!/Hendrix (1982), and PM Magazine/Acid Rock (1982), will be screened and discussed in depth.

Organized in conjunction with EAI's 45th anniversary, the "Edited at EAI" series highlights a historically significant but less well-known area of EAI's programs: EAI's Editing Facility for artists, one of the first such creative workspaces for video in the United States.
