Cut Ups: Queer Collage Practices
Cut Ups: Queer Collage Practices brings together works by an intergenerational group of foueen queer and feminist artists who each explore collage with diverse, erotically inclined tactics. The works in this show draw from print culture and pornography, dating from the era of gay and women's liberation to the present. While collage has typically been understood through the lens of modernism and the historical avant-garde or through postmodernism and pastiche, Cut Ups does not call on these frameworks. Rather, this exhibition presents collages - whether discovered in the archives or coming out of contemporary art practices-that demonstrate pornographic inspirations and world-making ambitions.
Cut Ups: Queer Collage Practices was first exhibited in Los Angeles as Cock, Paper, Scissors (April 2 – July 10, 2016) organized by David Evans Frantz, Lucas Hilderbrand, and Kayleigh Perkov.
Generous support for this exhibition was provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the ONE Archives Foundation.
Opening Reception: October 14, 6 - 8 pm

Feral Women/Filmed Portraits
Katrina Del Mar
Del Mar revels in her fascination and obsession with Feral Women: a riveting and immersive exhibition of photo portraits, filmed portraits, black velvet paintings and drawings. “Women expressing wildness, sometimes overt, sometimes subtle, is a manifestation of innate power. The high hard femme, the bad girl, the rocker, the biker, the surfer-selkie, are icons of a new feminist pantheon.” The implied mirror or screen, a disrupted transmissive surface for exploring known and newly discovered selves via butch selfie drawings and filmed portraits, challenge accepted norms of representation.
