KAYLA TANGE PERFORMANCE

Human Resources presents a multimedia installation and performance by Kayla Tange.

Curated by Vardui Sharapkhanyan, DEFINING BOUNDARIES explores the construction of boundaries that protect sacred interiority. Tange’s performance utilizes ritual, sound, ephemeral architecture and collected confessions (including her own) in an attempt to establish psychic, emotional and physical boundaries, guarding against abuse and trauma.

Tange has had solo performances at Coagula Curatorial, Highways Performance Space, Miami Art Basel, and the Asian Burlesque Extravaganza, and performed alongside Sheree Rose, Ron Athey, and Taylor Mac.

ALEXANDER KLUGE’S NEWS FROM IDEOLOGICAL ANTIQUITY

NEWS FROM IDEOLOGICAL ANTIQUITY—MARX/EISENSTEIN/CAPITAL—the 2008 film by filmmaker and social theorist Alexander Kluge on Sergei Eisenstein’s unrealized attempt to film Das Kapital—will screen at Human Resources in its full nine-hour length. Come and go as you please, and bring a pillow.

“The film expands in concentric circles as Kluge, his guests, interlocutors, and monologists make associative links on a range of topics that starts from a filmic discussion of Eisenstein’s notes.” — Marty Kirchner*

A GRAMMAR BUILT WITH ROCKS

A GRAMMAR BUILT WITH ROCKS—a two-part group exhibition at Human Resources and ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries, curated by Shoghig Halajian and Suzy Halajian—“presents artistic practices that trace the racialized and gendered relationship between bodies and land, and question narratives of socioecological crisis that contribute to the displacement and erasure of people and collective formations.

“The project appropriates its title from Édouard Glissant’s writingsas it looks to the ways in which the landscape contains, unfolds, and narrates its own history.”*

In a related program, Jumana Manna’s WILD RELATIVES (2018) will screen at Redcat in December.

SARAH RARA CLOSING RECEPTION

“Los Angeles permeates my work in so many ways. The subtlety of the seasons means that time passes in a very different way, a specific tempo with both slow changes and sudden shifts. Los Angeles has changed the way I sense the passage of time and this has affected the way I structure video and sound. I’ve become fascinated with very long and very short (almost imperceptible) durations. The vast depth of the city forces a kind of patience or long-view—I’m always aware of the mountains and the horizon.” — Sarah Rara*

The opening weekend for SARAH RARA—ALIAS was cancelled because of excessive heat in Los Angeles, but don’t miss the closing reception on Sunday.

THE QUEEN

Jack Doroshow (Flawless Sabrina)—“a fierce role model and pioneer of performance and queer cultures with a legacy that spanned seven decades of advocacy, activism, and drag”—died on November 18.*

Dirty Looks and Human Resources will pay tribute to this icon with a screening THE QUEEN (1968), director Frank Simon’s first-of-its-kind documentary of the drag pageant Sabrina staged in 1967 in New York City.

(A glimpse of THE QUEEN was widely seen in the opening titles of Season One of Transparent.)

 

FLAWLESS SABRINA TRIBUTE—THE QUEEN, Monday, December 18, from 8 pm to 11 pm.
