New York City
Join Dia and Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) for a screening of Lawrence Weiner’s Blue Moon Over, 2001 and Altered to Suit, 1979. The artist’s moving-image works extend his signature conceptual and language-based practice into cinematic and digital realms. Blue Moon Over explores language through animated motion drawings and text fragments. Restored with a new video transfer in 2011, Altered to Suit is an experimental day-in-the-life-of narrative, as told through playfully dissonant dialogue, image, and sound.
Reception will begin at 6:30 pm, followed by the screening at 7 pm.
