Promiscuous Cinema

Program 9: LTTR [Lesbians to the Rescue], 'Let the Tape Roll'

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Presented in Association with Frameline

The collectively-run artistic project and critical journal LTTR (K8 Hardy, Emily Roysdon, and Ginger Brooks Takahashi) presents herstorical tapes and recent pieces focused on artistic practice and performance. Linda Benglis’ Now is a pioneering color video in which the artist uses layers of self images to challenge notions of agency, temporality and polymorphous autoeroticism. Ulrike Müller’s Mock Rock mirrors the social experience of loneliness in the cultural conditionality of nature, and New Report by K8 Hardy and Wynne Greenwood (of Tracy + the Plastics), explores utopic and banal journalistic endeavors. Additional work by: Klara Liden, Maïa Cybelle Carpenter, G.B. Jones, Fareshteh Toosi, Carola Dertnig, Pauline Boudry, and AK Burns. (Maïa Cybelle Carpenter)
