Platinum Showcase @ REDCAT, Jul 8

7 July 2016

Outfest Los Angeles is presenting the Platinum Showcase film screening at Los Angeles’ REDCAT on July 8.

Showing as part of the LGBT film festival running July 7 to 17, the event will feature video works by artists and film makers including Vika Kirchenbauer, Kelly Gallagher, Madsen Minax, Gary Fembot, Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, and Patrick Staff.

The screening comes under the Outfest Platinum Section programme umbrella, and will show a range of short experimental film that dives into the “annals of queer archives to explore the present and future of queer bodies”. Films include the premiere of Staff’s exploration of queer intergenerational relationships through archival footage from the Tom of Finland Foundation and Kirchenbauer’s ‘YOU ARE BORING!’ (2015) deconstructing “normative ideas around the trans body”.

‘You don’t need a weatherman…’ @ Hollybush Gardens, Jan 16-Feb 22

15 January 2014

London’s Hollybush Gardens presents group exhibition You don’t need a weather man to know which way the wind blows, running January 16 to February 22.

Lifted from the lyrics of Bob Dylan’s ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’, the title speaks to contemporary social and political upheaval, through the American Civil Rights movement of the 60s. Artists Aaron Angell, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, Andrea Büttner, Helen Cammock, Knut Henrik Henriksen, Pierre HuygheJochen Lempert and Bruno Pacheco use not only the exhibition title but animals as cipher and metaphor for various states of transition.

See the Hollybush Gardens website for details.
