LOVE IS LIKE THE WEATHER
Sat 21 February, 20:00 – 23:30
A Film and Video Screening
Curated by Coral Short
Coral Short will be present. Let’s have a nice talk after the screening.
Love. We can’t live without it! One of our favorite conversation topics will be investigated thoroughly through a wide range of stunning North American queer video makers. This program is about the changeable nature of love throughout our lives including its successes and blisses as well as its trials and tribulations. Love includes both the bright sunny days as well as the cloudy storms of our tender queer/trans hearts. These performative filmmakers will cover many of the miraculous fluctuating states that love brings to our bodies and minds. This curation is full of searching and journeying through beautifully visceral landscapes, through heartache, desire, vulnerability and intimacy.
Thank you to Celeste Chan (SF) Nabeela Vega (DC) Ellen Nielsen (Chicago) and Devon Gallegos from MIX NYC for helping to create this bill with me. Thank you also to Groupe Intervention Vidéo (GIV)and Ok.Quoi?! Arts Festival

Lover Earth can be formally understood as a body of work, a body of land, or a green fagotty cyber goddess eco-terrorist dyke drag queen. She seeks pleasure by disrupting the false dichotomies that Nature and history/ man and woman/ male and female are inherently separate, which heterosexism and environmental domination depend on.

Joshua Vettivelu GLORY HOLE 2012 (4.29)
Glory Hole consists of an architecture that obstructs through reflection and a performance that produces an object (seemingly endlessly, seemingly autonomously) outwards. Six hundred synthetic Easter lilies are bound together and slowly excreted into the space of the art fair. At the end of this process, the garland is undone and the process begins again. Glory Hole reflects a moment where the cultural, the sentimental, and the spiritual become commercial commodity.
