Beautiful People/Beautiful Friends

Lynn Hershman + Friends in Person

San Francisco Art Institute

In celebration of her receipt of Germany’s ZKM/Seimens International Media Award, the Cinematheque honors local artist Lynn Hershman by screening her recent work, Beautiful People/Beautiful Friends, in which an idyllic scene of love and tranquility transforms into a story of domestic violence and electronic surveillance. Accompanying this will be short pieces by Hershman’s friends and collaborators over the last 15 years: Lisa Swenson, Mia Houlberg, Paula Levine, Jessie Drew, and current UC Davis students. Simultaneously, a new electronic interactive piece, America’s Finest, will be on view at the Paula Anglim Gallery through early July.
