Characteristic of Howard Fried's video/sculpture and performance activities, Condom is essentially a detail from a larger work, one that can best be described as an arrangement of men and women probing the relationship between sex and economics.
• By Howard Fried. (1979-80, 30 mins, color)

Tony Oursler's video work combines elements of “new image” painting with a satiric narrative that toys with the notion of an alienated narrator.
• By Tony Oursler. (1980, 30 mins, color)

Garage Sale II
As a sequel to their film hit, Garage Sale (1976), Bruce and Norman Yanomoto have produced another in a series of video works (several of which, including Impotent Metaphor, were screened in this series last spring) dealing with changing attitudes toward sexuality and self-image. The tape moves freely between documentary realism and what might be called “extended documentary,” or surrealism.
• By Bruce and Norman Yanomoto. (1980, 35 mins, color)
Plus, new short works The Future and Warm Coffee by Ilene Segalove.
