EAI at 50 at Metrograph: Bernadette Corporation

7 Ludlow Street
February 12
7:30 pm

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to partner with Metrograph to present a series of programs highlighting our catalogue and its essential role in the history of artists’ moving image work. This program coincides with our ongoing celebration of EAI's 50th anniversary.

Formed in 1994, Bernadette Corporation is a multi-hyphenate, international, and anonymous art collective whose feverish output resists pat categorization. The group has spanned a wide range of cultural production including nightlife promotion, fashion, the magazine Made In USA, the collectively-authored novel Reena Spaulings (Semiotext(e), 2005), gallery art, and the medium of publicity itself. This evening pairs two key video works, which embody their spirit of détournement and defiant self-effacement: Hell Frozen Over (2000), described by the group as "a fashion film about the poetry of Stéphane Mallarmé and the color white,” and Get Rid of Yourself (2002), an “anti-documentary” fusing footage of the G8 summit protests in Genoa, Italy with appearances by actress Chloë Sevigny and artist-philosopher Werner von Delmont.

Introduced by Lizzi Bougatsos.
