Screen Slate is thrilled to launch its online streaming series with a career-spanning screening and live Q&A with artist Cecelia Condit on Thursday, May 21 at 8:00 pm EST, co-presented by Electronic Arts Intermix. Watch live at twitch.tv/screenslate, no account required.

Cecelia Condit (born 1947, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American artist working in video and photography. Since 1981, Condit produces films that swing between beauty and the grotesque, innocence and cruelty. In the psychological landscape of contemporary fairy tales, Condit’s videos put a subversive spin on the traditional mythology of women in film and the psychology of sexuality and violence. Exploring the dark side of female subjectivity, her “feminist fairy tales” focus on friendships, violence, age, and childhood.

The program consists of:

Possibly in Michigan (1983, 12 min)
Beneath the Skin (1981, 12 min)
Not a Jealous Bone (1987, 10 min)
We Were Hardly More Than Children (2019, 9 min)
Pulling Up Roots (2015, 8 min)
I've Been Afraid (2020, 7 min)
TRT: 58 min

After the screening, Condit will join for a live Q&A moderated by media art conservator and Screen Slate editor Jon Dieringer.

The screening and Q&A will be archived and made available to Screen Slate members. Join here.
