SUBVERSIVE FILM SCREENINGS
THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 7:00PM
$5 ADMISSION PER EVENING
“Subversive" is a mini-art festival encompassing a group art exhibition, curated by Ryan Joseph, and series of film screenings exploring the seemingly “benevolent” appeal of subcultures. The festival will point out the parallels that exist among the subcultures of Burlesque, the Ball Scene, Roller Derby, Lucha Libre, among others. The event will look at alternative conceptions of "masculinity" and "femininity" in spaces that redefine the role of gender and sexuality in a hetero-normative society. We will discover how these subcultures relate to each other and sociopolitical movements, and how they influence mainstream attitudes and culture. The film festival will take place April 22-24 at 7:00pm each night.
