Video | Trevor Shimizu: Site Specific


A special evening with Trevor Shimizu. As conceived by the artist, the event will take a unique form: For one night only, a selection of Shimizu’s video works will be installed in the program space and throughout EAI’s offices. Visitors are invited to enjoy a glass of wine while ‘schmoozing and art touring’ with Shimizu. Trevor Shimizu has produced a large body of paintings that are crudely gestural, sparse, and subtle in their aesthetics, if not in their subject matter. Humiliating social incidents and aberrations usually kept private are made public; porn and potty humor are frequent references. The grand narrative of Western art history is co-opted by and clashed with popular culture, dethroning the former’s lofty status and exemplifying Shimizu’s unique relationship to self-portraiture and creative personae: Gustav Courbet, Larry David, explicit Instagram bots, and Eastbound and Down. Fittingly for an artist so attuned to television and social media, video and performance are important complements to Shimizu’s paintings, though this aspect of his career has not been exhibited as widely. Shimizu’s videos are, like his paintings, semi-autobiographical and minimally aestheticized, embodying a dry wit that undermines the sometimes clichéd gravitas of “video art.” In Memoir (2005), text on screen recounts Shimizu’s experience of the utopic hippie culture of California; Club (2002-12) documents his experience as a photographer at nightclubs and parties.

Screening | Anniversaries: A German Miniseries, Episode 1


New York, New York, in the late 1960s. German interpreter Gesine Cresspahl, who was born in a small village in the German province of Mecklenburg, feels out of place in her adopted country. She has never gotten over the death of Jakob, her true love. The father of her now eleven-year-old daughter was run over by a train and killed. At Marie’s insistence Gesine begins to tell the story of her family, which in turn is a story of what happened in Germany. The memories stretch from Hitler’s rise to power and World War II, to the post-war period and the establishment of East Germany, and finally to the suppression of the Prague Spring in the summer of 1968.   For a long time Uwe Johnson’s complex masterwork Anniversaries was believed to be unfilmable. Director Margarethe von Trotta filmed it anyway. The result is a four-part miniseries, in which von Trotta succeeds in translating the complexity and intricacy of the novel into cinematic language.  90 min. In German with English subtitles.

Screening | Eye on Dance: Synthesizing Art and Technology with Myth and Ritual (1987)


Eye on Dance was a television series launched in 1981 to deepen the public’s understanding of the full spectrum of dance forms that intersect to produce American dance. An in-depth interview based series, the socially and historically framed discussions were illuminated through performance excerpts. Meredith Monk and Ping Chong discuss their work in mixed media performance with moderator Celia Ipiotis. The conversation taps into their association, common interests, and collaboration; and themes—like alienation—tackled in their works. Performance excerpts include segments of their famed 1982 film Paris; excerpts from Monk’s Break and Quarry; Chong’s Kindness; and their joint work The Games. Celia Ipiotis will be joined by panelists Art Bridgman, Daniel Madoff, and Myrna Packer for this live screening.
