Who's Got Short Shorts?
Dara Birnbaum, MTV Artbreak, 1987

Got a short attention span? If so, be sure to put aside Wednesday evening for Electronic Arts Intermix's Summer Screening "Short Shorts." Drawing from EAI's massive archive of video art, all the works in the screening are under 2 minutes long - meaning that forty-five works will be shown during the entire duration of this forty-five minute screening. Blink or you'll miss it, seriously. "Short Shorts" includes work by Dan Asher, Beth B, Phyllis Baldino, Michael Bell-Smith, Dara Birnbaum, Cheryl Donegan, VALIE EXPORT, Forcefield, Matthew Geller, Gran Fury, Gary Hill, Ken Jacobs, Tom Kalin, Kalup Linzy, George Maciunas, Charlotte Moorman, Shana Moulton, Yoko Ono, Dennis Oppenheim, Nam June Paik, Martha Rosler, Paul Sharits, Stuart Sherman, Shelly Silver, Michael Smith, Leslie Thornton, Steina and Woody Vasulka, Lawrence Weiner and Bruce and Norman Yonemoto. Event begins at 6:30 at EAI in Chelsea.
