Another Experiment By Women
presents a show with guest curator Sasha Waters Freyer
Try a Little Tenderness is a selection of old and new works in 16mm film and video about being vulnerable – exposed and unsafe. Susceptible, yet ready. The program is a personal and collective response to the ontology of artistic canons in and of themselves. It presents a selection of works that cross and expose the boundaries by including Net Art, music video, performance-documentation and video art alongside more traditional approaches to experimental cinema. These nine works address, in very different ways and formats, acts of being naked to the world – the human body in search of love, food, adventure or acceptance; the human challenge to “acceptable” conduct based on race and gender stereotypes. Try It – Try a Little Tenderness. With works by Greta Snider, Kelly Gallagher, Tova Mozard, Ira Eduardovna, Jennifer Chan, Alma Alloro, Laurel Nakadate, Leslie Hall, Roger Beebe and Sasha Waters Freyer.
