Joan Jonas Knowledge Base: Launch Event and Virtual Program

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) and Dia Art Foundation
October 18th through October 25th

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to present an online exhibition of Joan Jonas's early video works, complementing the launch of NYU's Joan Jonas Knowledge Base (JJKB), an open source digital resource housing generous information about the New York-based artist. This screening program, freely accessible through October 25th, features key early videos by the artist, and a reel of unedited footage from Organic Honey's Visual Telepathy (1972), providing a rare insight into Jonas's process and precise orchestrations for camera. Works included here highlight the artist's pioneering explorations into the phenomenology of video as mirror (Left Side Right Side, Glass Puzzle, and Disturbances), and meditative portraits of landscape and memory (Barking, Merlo, and I Want to Live in the Country). Also included is documentation from the October 15th launch event hosted by Dia Art Foundation (RSVP here), featuring an introduction to the JJKB by project directors Barbara Clausen, Deena Engel, Lozana Rossenova, and Glenn Wharton, and a discussion among the artist, EAI director Rebecca Cleman, and Haus der Kunst director Andrea Lissoni.
