> DESCRIPTION

An afternoon of screenings, presentations, and conversation that expand various ideas and concerns that inform Connie Samaras: Tales of Tomorrow and Contested Destination, two exhibitions currently on display. 

Program is as follows:

  • SPECULATORS 1–2pm 
    Artist and writer Suzie Silver presents writings and films from her book Strange Attractors: Investigations in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities (co-edited with Christopher Kardambikis and Jasdeep Khaira: Encyclopedia Destructica, 2013). 

    Writer and artist Anna Joy Springer reads and discusses her hybrid, time travel novel The Vicious Red Relic, Love: A Fabulist Memoir (Jaded Ibis Press, 2011).

  • INVESTORS 2–3pm 
    Artist Jeannie Simms screens and discusses selections fromReadymaids (2008 and 2009), a series of videos and photographs done in collaboration with women in the migrant domestic work industry in Asia. 

    Filmmaker and visual artist Erica Cho screens The Heart’s Mouth (2013), a romantic encounter between two Asian youth. The film is part of Golden Golden, a larger project on queer imagination and longing within working class communities of color. 

    Feng-Mei Heberer, writer, film curator, and Ph.D. candidate in Critical Studies at University of Southern California moderates a discussion of the artists’ works.

  • WORKERS 3-4pm 
    Artists and writers Connie Samaras and Matias Viegener have a conversation with each other and audience members about local time, biography, and the passage of time, from the 1990s to now.
