Film and Media Screening Series: Grrls on Girls II: Bonded, with Jane Ursula Harris and Directors
March 20 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Curator Jane Ursula Harris and directors Barbara Hammer, Katrina del Mar, Jill Reiter and Viva Ruiz will be in person to present Grrls on Girls II: Bonded, the second installment in a series curated by Harris. The films celebrate the transgressive, DIY feminism of riot grrl culture through the work of women filmmakers, bringing together queer, campy takes on female bonding that are saturated with raunchy sex and erotic revenge.
Jane Ursula Harris is a Brooklyn-based freelance curator and writer who has contributed to various publications from Art in America, Bookforum, and The Paris Review to The Believer, the Village Voice, Huffington Post, and Time Out New York. She has also contributed essays to various catalogs such as Participant Inc.’s M Lamar (due later this year); Hatje Cantz’s Examples to Follow: Expeditions in Aesthetics and Sustainability (2010); Phaidon’s Vitamin D: New Perspectives in Drawing (2005), Universe-Rizzoli’s Curve: The Female Nude Now (2004), and Twin Palms’ Anthony Goicolea (2003). Harris is a member of the art history faculty at School of Visual Arts, and is currently at work on the book After: The Role of the Copy in Modern Art.
The Film and Media Screening Series is supported by the Diversity Council, the Student-Faculty Corporation, the School of Liberal Arts, the Department of Film, Media and Performing Arts, and the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures.
All screenings are free and open to the public.
