Programmed by Danielle E Campbell

Utilizing sculpture, video, and performance, Ellen Nielsen and Leslie Rogers probe notions of sexuality, nature, humor and absurdity to wittingly subvert associated conventions. In their work, we enter eco-feminist critical landscapes that teeter provocatively on a line between beauty and vulgarity and are composed of giant poms, stuffed phalli, glitter, silly string, and flowers. This hour long program features recent shorts made by Nielsen and Rogers, as well as a special live performance. -Danielle E Campbell
