The Williams College Art Department and the Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) present Looking is Better than Feeling You, a fast-paced and high-energy program that showcases women artists currently working in performance video.
Looking is Better than Feeling You was created by New York-based independent film and video curator Astria Suparak for the opening nights of Ladyfest in San Francisco and Washington D.C. The San Francisco Bay Guardian says, "This irreverent, rebellious, and self-parodying film program takes on punk rockers, politicians, parents, and posers who fake it like they mean it."
Included in Looking is Better than Feeling You are video and audio works by Jaqueline Goss, Dara Greenwald, Colleen Hennessey, Miranda July, Eliete Mejorado, Kristin J. Mohr & Kelly Hayes, Shannon Plumb, Jenny Stark, Kirsten Stoltmann and Karen Yasinsky. Ms. Suparak will introduce the hour-long program, and she will be available to answer questions following the screening.
Twenty-four year-old Astria Suparak creates site-specific film and video shows for art spaces, alternative theaters, and film festivals. She is currently traveling across the Americas on her sixth tour in two years.
Looking is Better than Feeling You is presented in conjunction with Street Show, an exhibition of recent performance video about urban experience, on view through January 12, 2003 in Media Field, WCMAÂ¹s gallery dedicated to video and new media art. The Spencer Video Studio is located at 35 Driscoll Hall Drive on the Williams College campus in Williamstown, MA.
The Williams College Museum of Art is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is free and the museum is wheelchair accessible. A portion of the museumÂ¹s general operating funds for this fiscal year has been provided through grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
