About the Events
Interdependent Bodies: TRANSFEMINIST COCKTAIL PARTY: moira williams’ often co-creative practice weaves together performance, bio-art, food and movement as a lived experience, while simultaneously creating opportunities for artists through curatorial projects. moira invites people to reconfigure familiar objects and social events to offer multiple opportunities for building our social imagination, deepening our ecological meanings and questioning systems of power. moira approaches culture as something we actively shape together. moira williams
Lizzy De Vita is an artist, writer, and educator, and is the the inaugural Accessibility Fellow at Flux Factory. Her work occupies a constellation of media, including performance, text, sound, drawing, installation, video and sculpture. Diverse in form, the work is unified by an underlying interest in viral moments: places where the boundaries between ourselves and others’ are blurred. lizzydevita.us
Hello produced, recorded, illustrated and edited by E.T. Russian is based on a true story of an adult and a child who meet in a public toilet under unexpected circumstances. etrussian.com
