With this presentation, the Memorial Art Gallery celebrates its recent acquisition of Charles Atlas's Here she is...v1. This work consists of a single-channel video installation featuring Lady Bunny, an iconic drag performer, who speaks on politics and current events, dances and lip-syncs. She is a vivid presence, especially considering the wall-size scale of the video.

 

To celebrate the MAG’s presentation of Charles Atlas’ Here she is…v1 (2015), the pioneering film and video artist will join Douglas Crimp, the Fanny Knapp Allen Professor of Art History at the University of Rochester, in a lively and wide-ranging conversation about his career and artistic partnerships across disciplines.
