Anna Bella Geiger: Screening and Artist Talk

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)
535 West 22nd St. 5th Floor New York, NY 10011
April 25th, 6:30 PM

EAI is honored to present a special evening with pioneering Brazilian artist Anna Bella Geiger, an influential figure who is recognized as the first female video artist in Brazil. Geiger, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, will screen and discuss her newly preserved video works from the 1970s and ‘80s. Geiger's groundbreaking body of early performance video maps the relationship of the (often female) body, space, and place, in what the artist has termed an “anthropo-morphic cartography.” In her multi-disciplinary artwork, which also includes painting, sculpture, photography, engraving, and multi-media installation, Geiger interweaves the political and the poetic to address issues of identity and national culture.

This event celebrates a major initiative to preserve early film and video artworks by Brazilian women artists, funded with the generous support of the Ostrovsky Family Fund.
