EAI is pleased to present a program of moving image work by Ellen Cantor (1961-2013), whose multimedia art practice advanced bold new feminist representations of sexuality and empowerment. In these diaristic and intimate pieces, Cantor deftly uses the medium of video to appropriate, re-dub, and reframe imagery from such diverse sources as Antonioni, Disney cartoons, John Cassavetes, porn, and classic horror films. Key works, including Evokation of My Demon Sister (2002), Remember Me (1998), and Within Heaven and Hell (1996), will be screened, along with the rarely-seen video If I Just Turn and Run (1998), which was recently rediscovered in Cantor's archive. This event also launches EAI's distribution of a selection of Cantor's moving image work.
This event is part of a series of concurrent exhibitions, public programs, and screenings featuring the work of Ellen Cantor, scheduled throughout Fall 2016. Exhibitions will take place at 80WSE Gallery, Maccarone, Participant Inc., and Foxy Production, with public programs hosted by Skowhegan and the world premiere of Cantor's film Pinochet Porn (2008-2016) at The Museum of Modern Art.
