Robert Beck/Robert Buck: Artist Talk and Screening

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)

EAI is pleased to present an evening focused on the moving image work of Robert Beck/Buck, whose approach to art-making merges cinematic, televisual, and visual art aesthetics and strategies to singular effect. Alongside a selection of his video art works, the evening will feature Beck’s nearly year-long conceptual broadcast project, The Space Program (1985-86), an early, largely unconsidered work in the artist’s career – here screened publicly for the first time since its original broadcast late night on Manhattan Cable Television. Buck will introduce the program, and be in conversation following the screening.

Buck, who changed his father’s name as a work, or act, of art in 2008, was integrally involved in EAI from the 1980s to the early 2000s, in roles including Technical Director and Chief Editor. This event will launch EAI’s distribution of Beck/Buck’s video work.
