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.
