DESCRIPTION

Circa 1971 presents a selection of video and film works by key figures in early video art from the collection of Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), a nonprofit organization that fosters the creation, exhibition, distribution, and preservation of moving-image art.

Celebrating EAI’s 40th anniversary, the exhibition takes the organization’s founding year as its point of departure and presents a diverse series of media artworks — created in and around 1971 — linked by the alternative artistic practices and activist impulses that drove the early video subculture.

Organized by guest curator and EAI Executive Director Lori Zippay in collaboration with Dia's curatorial department.
