5:00-6:30 pm
Hidden Treasure: Special Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) Presentation on Video Preservation

EAI Executive Director Lori Zippay will discuss EAI’s pioneering video preservation program, exploring how this initiative has led to the “rediscovery” of significant but virtually unknown early works by artists. Anthony Ramos’s rarely seen, politically charged performance videos of the early 1970s will be featured (with other seminal works) as examples of how preservation can result not only in technical restoration, but also in the restoration and illumination of forgotten histories.
