Tomorrow night at EAI in Chelsea, Carolee Schneemann presents some of her newly restored films and videos spanning a 40 year body of media work. Schneemann will be present introduce each work and answer audience questions. Schneemann's work often takes the form of body performance, popular and internationalized in the 60s and 70s, and takes on particularly political direction, distinguishing her from certain a number of her contemporaries working along similar lines. The presentation of her work is done in conjunction with Anthology Film Archives which will be presenting new film prints of several of Schneemann's works on 15-17 November 2007.

Video artist and photographer Stan Douglas also be giving a talk tomorrow at the New School as part of Public Art Fund Talks program. Douglas often makes narrative works and adaptations of films exploring contemporary cultural and political configurations, mixing high production values with sometime experimental editing techniques and deep seated cultural and historic references.
