feminist-360

Curated by Stella Marrs & DJ Hellerman

Join us for a special presentation of feminist inspired video shorts in celebration of Women’s History Month. Co-curated by Stella Marrs and DJ Hellerman, the shorts program provides an opportunity to examine ideas of gender, race, and class through an interrogation of pop culture, celebrity, domesticity, and sexual orientation.

Stella Marrs is an interdisciplinary artist whose work addresses feminism, ecology, and the female voice. Marrs has made large scale, collaborative, event-based works such as Girl City and 100 Women Dinner Party that are cited as seeds for later Riot Grrrl culture. She was commissioned to create a video installation for the 2013 BCA Center exhibition Seat’s Taken. DJ Hellerman is Curator and Director of Exhibitions at Burlington City Arts.

The essence of design lies in its profound ability to affect how we think about and experience the world. This is a film series about architecture and design that will engage, provoke and inspire the community by exploring the impact and importance of design and beauty in our lives. We invite you to join us for thoughtful discussion and light refreshments in hopes that this creative gathering will broaden awareness, foster connections, spark new ideas, and ultimately build momentum towards positive action.

COAST MODERN
by Mike Bernard and Gaviin Froome 2012
USA, 55 minutes

Traveling along the Pacific North West coastline from LA to Vancouver, this relaxed journey takes us across three generations of Modernist architecture, all taking us back to the basics of true living – a sense of place, light, and a deep connection to the earth. Dion Neutra tells us that the way to live is to have ‘the comfort of being inside, yet you have the feeling of being outside’, and it is this established principle that contemporary Modernist architects are emulating and evolving today.

Short films by, for, about women. This year’s featured short films include stories of reflection, hope and humor from around the world – treating such diverse subjects as – a winning basketball team of grandmothers in their ’70s – a high school wrestler from inner-city Brooklyn preparing for her first co-ed match – and a girl with a high-flying approach to dealing with her Tourette’s syndrome, among other compelling themes.

Special guests at the reception:
