“Exploration of Gender & Sexuality”
Vaudeville: A Dazzling display of Heterogeneous Pleasure.
(Fort Lauderdale, FL) -
Please join us on October 26th
at 1310 Gallery
for a Vaudeville Exploration of Gender & Sexuality
featuring local artists; Lisa Rockford, Samantha Nye and Tabatha Mudra.
The voix de ville will commence at 7pm; a collective yet mixed representation of the artists’ ongoing fascination with gender and sexuality. Rockford draws from contemporary popular imagery and historical narrative, creating seductive images that refine the onslaught of visual clutter. Her current work hacks and manipulates existing children’s imagery in order to investigate prescribed notions of glamour, virtue, power, innocence, and gender. Artist Samantha Nye states, “viewing the family as a perverse engine of discovery and intimacy, my art probes the visibility of sexuality. My work conjures a queer reading of Freudian familial dynamics and highlights the act of seduction.”
The sheer abundance, variety, and spectacle of this event will stimulate the senses with ‘flash mob’ performances by the gender bending troupe Drag it Out and circus-like sideshows featuring gender-queer pumpkin carving and “fingerstache” stations.This conceptual creation will transform gallery goers from their traditional roles as passive spectators to consumers of experience, interaction and sensation. Drag It Out, a local non-profit is sponsoring this event and will be announcing the launch of their new website, programs, and opportunities to get involved!
1310 Gallery is located: 1310 SW 2nd Court, Fort Lauderdale FL 33312
