This event will take place at Now Instant Image Hall, 5319 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042. Tickets are $10 and available on-site only.

From her first experiment with the Sony Portapak (in conjunction with media artist Max Almy) to the multi-layered autobiographical exercise that helped her through chemotherapy, pioneering lesbian feminist filmmaker Barbara Hammer has expanded her visual vocabulary beyond her extensive work with celluloid to actively employ the immediacy of video production for over 40 years. Haptics, lesbian sensuality, playfulness, collaboration, and illness, all thematically present throughout her career, are encapsulated here in a brief overview of Hammer’s analog and digital output.
