EAI is pleased to present Mary Lucier's Selected Works 1975-2000, three newly restored and compiled programs that bring together eleven of the artist's major video works. Organized chronologically, these programs trace the essential themes that distinguish Lucier's work over three decades, from her earliest experiments with video technology to her lyrical visual narratives and explorations of light and landscape. These programs provide an invaluable overview to the development of Lucier's artistic practice.

In the 1980s, Lucier created a series of "visual narratives" that explored natural and urban landscapes as agents of perception and memory. Many of these lyrical works, which are featured in Program 2: The 1980s: Landscapes, were conceived as multi-channel installations. In the elegiac Ohio at Giverny, Lucier creates dialogues across time and place, which resonate with personal and 19th-century art historical references. Dualities of nature and culture recur in Wintergarden, while Amphibian extends Lucier's investigations of motion and space to gestures of the body and dance.
