Subject: TOGETHER AT LAST: a contemporary presentation of historic work
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I'd like to invite you to the first incarnation of "TOGETHER AT LAST: A
Contemporary Presentation of Historic Work"; a free, one-night screening of
70s performance and art video in Manhattan happening this Sunday, July 22
2007. This screening will feature 6 videos from a collection of important
conceptual and performance works of that decade, which have influenced
artists working in these and related modes since. The work will be screened
in pairs, and projected two at a time on opposing screens, while viewers
move about freely in the space. Working formally in the language of
contemporary internet folk art and media production, our desire is more than
to simply construct a double projection. It is, rather, to work against
nostalgia in an attempt to make plain the connections between 70s art video
and more contemporary media practice.
Our screening is an experiment of sorts, a material realization of an
internet mash-up, and an homage to some artworks which are very important to
us. We'd love for you to take part in this experiment and come see these
important works in a contemporary way. The screening will start at 8pm at
the Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex, located just south of Hell's Kitchen, at
the following address:
SUNDAY 22 JULY 2007, 8pm*
Abingdon Theater Arts Complex
312 W36th St. @ 8th Ave
In the black box
A/C/E to 34th St.
The works screened will be:
"I am Making Art" by John Baldessari,
"Vertical Roll" by Joan Jonas,
"Facing a Family" by Valie Export,
"Kiss the Girls: Make Them Cry" by Dara Birnbaum,
"Centers" by Vito Acconci, and
"The East is Red, The West is Bending" by Martha Rosler.
