Bloodlines: an evening of video & performance

Saturday December 3, 2011, 7-9pm
Craftswoman House, 929 North Oakland Ave, Pasadena, CA 91104

Katie Cercone, Audrey Chan, Jeseca Dawson, Jessica Dolence, Kara Hern, Gelare Khoshgozaran, Michele Jaquis, Melissa Potter, Linda Ravenswood, and Nooshin Rostami

Curated by Launa Bacon and Cindy Rehm

Craftswoman House is honored to present Bloodlines, an evening of video and performance from 7-9pm in conjunction with the closing of the exhibition Stemma. Like the matriarchs of the second-wave, these artists make work that reflects women’s lives and experiences. They explore subjects of gender, identity, domestic life, and the female body, through video and performance.

Craftswoman House is a new venue dedicated to fostering a dialogue on feminist issues through projects and exhibitions. Craftswoman House is inspired by collective projects such as Womanhouse, and pays homage to the rich legacy of feminist art in Southern California. (http://craftswomanhouse.com/)
