Broadcasting: EAI at ICA


Edited by Rebecca Cleman and Alex Klein. Co-published with the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania. Designed by Geoff Han and Anna Feng.

This volume marks the 50th anniversary of Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), one of the first nonprofit organizations dedicated to the advocacy for and development of video as an art form, providing a crucial space of production and mode of distribution. Broadcasting: EAI at ICA pays tribute to EAI as a site of exchange between an inter-generational group of artists whose time-based artworks are produced in concert with their means of circulation, from the democratic platform of public access television to the instantaneity of social media. The book features an oral history with Lori Zippay, EAI’s Director Emerita, that charts the growth of EAI against the backdrop of a changing New York art world, alongside critical essays by the curators and contributions by artists Antoine Catala, Tony Cokes, Ulysses Jenkins, and Sondra Perry.
