OPENING RECEPTION!! September 9, 2010 (Thursday) from 5-8pm at
SF Camerawork 657 MIssion St., San Francisco (btw New Montgomery and 3rd St).
Hello & welcome to another Killer Banshee Scream. We have a full installational
version of "Unleashed Power" installed at SF Camerawork for this
show. A new studio performance of the video piece, enlargements mounted of
the evidence photos, ephemera, & the full deposition printed so you can
page through it yourself. We are looking forward to seeing you. If you aren't
already basically familiar with our Unleashed Power piece here's the one sentence
Unleashed Power uses found & personal footage, imagery & text pulled from deposition transcripts to examine the history of ACT-UP demonstrations and police violence through the lens of a single incident...the violence visited on Kriss during the Chicago ACT-UP AMA Demo in June of 1991.
There are links at the bottom of this email to read & see more about Unleashed Power. There are 15 other artists showing work in this show, so there will be lots to see! Don't miss it!
Join us for an evening reception from 5 - 8 pm
Suggestions of a Life Being Lived is a bold presentation of contemporary work that looks at queerness as a set of political alliances and possibilities. The exhibition features 16 artists working in photography, film, video, activism and education, and was organized for SF Camerawork by guest curators Danny Orendorff and Adrienne Skye Roberts. Untethered to institutions of sexual or gender normativity and in pursuit of greater freedoms, the work in this exhibition represents queer activism, intentional and imagined communities, self-determinism, and DIY alternative world-making.
Suggestions of a Life Being Lived begins from a place of “outness” and considers how a sense of liberated queerness is pursued and mediated within public spaces and behaviors. Less concerned with categorical sexual identities or coming-out narratives, this exhibition presents work that looks outward towards collective and resistant expressions of queer community existing outside of dominant gay and lesbian culture.
Featuring work by: killer banshee, Steven Miller, Tara Mateik, Gay Shame, Kirstyn Russell, Jeannie Simms, Lenn Keller, Mercury Vapor Studios, Chris Vargas, Greg Youmans, Jason Fritz Michael, Aay Preson-Myint, Allyson Mitchell, Eric Stanley, Torsten Zenas Burns, and Darrin Martin.
