In Wet Spots: Solo\ , choreographer Christine Suarez uses text and movement to explore the hist ory of the female orgasm. She shifts between personal and historical narrat ives to uncover the anxiety and humor within the realm of female pleasure.< /p>\n

 \;

\n

The video works of Andrea Chung and McLean Fahnesto ck utilize juxtaposition and displacement to explore female experience. In The Sport of Kings\, Fahnestock appropriates footage of Anita Hill’s testimony during the Clarence Thomas hearings beside footage of the horser ace between filly Ruffian and the colt Foolish Pleasure. The work runs the length of the race\, which was billed as “the battle of the sexes\,” and se rves as a visual record of the spectacle of sex in politics and sports. Chu ng’s Untitled (Zwayon) uses language to reveal female alienat ion within a quiet domestic moment.

\n

Alyce Haliday M cQueen examines vocalization and muteness through her video works Untitl ed (trust) and Chubby Bunny (Marshmallows). Elizab eth Leister attempts a vanishing act through an act of self-stitching in he r video Disappearing Act. In Sister’s The Cutter\, a showgirl defies the perfecting confinement of female beauty rituals and exposes her mortal\, leaking body.

\n

 \;

\n

Both Tricia Lawless Murray and Ursula Brookbank produce haunting moving images. Lawless Murray’s Br ide Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors\, Even\, subverts Duchamp’s masculin e perspective\, as the artist’s body becomes the primary vantage point of t he work. Brookbank’s BL.SLP is a collection of fragments that  flick er like a late-night dreamscape.

Vox will al so include a visit from Felicia Montes’ alter ego Raramujer and the bumpin’ bici as well as a musical performance by Stephanie Soule-Mag gio and a cheer-inspired song by Pedestal and the All-Girl Band.
