On this special occasion, three artists will take over a projector each within AcA’s Main Gallery in order to showcase three separate videos. The audience will be privy to a guided walk through of the exhibition with Jaik Faulk, AcA visual arts director, and participate in a discussion with the artists that will offer insight into the meanings and process within the works.
This event is an occasion to expand upon and explore the ideas central to Lala Raščić’s Gorgo. Featured in this screening are three kindred female artists Cristina Molina, Nina Schwanse, and Ryn Wilson, who were collaborators and conspirators in Lala Raščić’s New Orleans community of artists. They, with Raščić, share a dream of radically different feminist futures. Their works invoke mythical female figures and engage in transformative readings of mythological formulae.
