Hysteria: Visualizing Female Anxiety

So the art show that I talked about in my last post turned out to be a success beyond our wildest imaginations. We aren't sure how many people showed up to Temple Head (the gallery) but we do know that we ran out of alcohol at the bar at least twice. The place was packed. So many of my friends showed up and I spent the entire night (and weekend!) with an extra warmed heart and flying on an emotional high. Kind of incredible that all-women feminist art show could fill an entire gallery with people, on a bitterly cold night!

Gigi's painting



Alicia's painting was my favorite thing... 

Morgan's installation

 MINE. Remind never to mount my photos on foamcore ever again...

Tavi and Claire showed up! 


SO MANY HUMANS. 


 There were a few performance artists. I really liked Heather Marie's video piece, in which different loony characters talked to the camera about all sorts of things, and Heather talked back to them as calmly as a therapist.

 Alicia and the curator/driving force behind this show, Morgan

I'm obsessed with this vintage lurex skirt that looks like shiny TV static, will probably not take it off during Fashion Week... 

 I also created a video performance art piece for the show that was projected onto the wall. I've been thinking of exploring video as a medium because it is so close to photography, but haven't really had any reason to do so until this show came along. You won't get to see the video on this blog because I am in my underwear and I think my family knows about my blog and uh, I don't feel like the entire world needs to see me act silly in granny panties for 8.5 minutes. But I really enjoyed creating the piece and think it is something I want to integrate into my creative work going forward.

What an incredibly theme for an exhibition. I've spent the last semester studying hysteria and the inadequacy of language to truly describe the experience in full. Your work and the work of the other artists works so well individually, and together.
