According to EAI: “A key figure in Conceptual Art, Lawrence Weiner has long pursued inquiries into language and the art-making process. From his pioneering installation works of the 1960s and ’70s through his new digital projects, Weiner posits a radical redefinition of the artist/viewer relationship and the very nature of the artwork. Translating his investigations into linguistic structures and visual systems across varied formats and manifestations, Weiner has also produced books, films, videos, performances and audio works.”
On January 19, EAI hosted a screening and talk by Martha Rosler featuring her “kitchen videos.” At EAI, Rosler premiered her most recent work, Semiotics of the Kitchen: An Audition (2011, 10:26 min), alongside three of her landmark videos from the 1970s, A budding gourmet (1974, 17:45 min),Semiotics of the Kitchen (1975, 6:09 min), and The East Is Red, The West Is Bending (1977, 19:57 min). It was a wonderful experience! There a handful of these talks and screenings each year, keep a look out!
