Miami Beach, Florida

Screen Play brings together a selection of film, video and digital artworks that present artists' dynamic engagements with the moving image across six decades. Drawn from EAI's extensive archive, these works highlight the cross-disciplinary relation of the moving image to other artistic media and forms—performance, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture—while also exploring the distinctive languages of video, film and digital media.

The public will be able to view artists' moving image works on screens in multiple public spaces of The Sagamore Hotel, as well as on an "EAI TV Channel" for the hotel guest rooms.

Screen Play features moving image works by artists including Takeshi Murata, Leslie Thornton, Jacolby Satterwhite, Joan Jonas, Merce Cunningham, Alex Hubbard, Dara Birnbaum, Shana Moulton, Michael Bell-Smith, Lawrence Weiner, Steina, Nam June Paik, and John Baldessari.

Screen Play was guest curated by Lori Zippay, EAI's Executive Director.
