KAUCYILA BROOKE: EXCERPTS FROM THE BOY MECHANIC

Friday, March 3 at 8 PM

Film materials from artist Kaucyila Brooke’s eponymous research project, shot in the cities of San Francisco (2007), Los Angeles (2005) and San Diego (1996) document the ephemeral structure of historic and recent lesbian social space through a focus on the bar. Surveying urban sites and anecdotal personal histories — nuanced by friendship, sexuality, desire, and failures of memory — Brooke’s work traces a larger narrative arc through changes in public identity and the politics of collective social forms. Run time: approx. 60 min. Q + A with Kaucyila Brooke to follow. Curated by Kari Rittenbach and Monika Senz for What “Everybody Knows” (4 March-15 April 2017), Jenny’s, Los Angeles and Svetlana, New York. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE!

Doors 7:30 PM. Admission $5.

Variations on his signature “swampdonkey” tag — the skull of some imaginary tusked creature — can be found in almost every imaginable setting across America: dilapidated skyscrapers in Oakland, Calif.; train trestles in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; gallery walls in Atlanta or Brooklyn.
