A program of shorts will be followed with a mix by Jessica Ciocci, founding member of the Pittsburgh, PA/Providence, RI art collective Paper Rad. The collective creates comics, zines, video art, net art, MIDI files, paintings, installations and music, and has work exhibited in major museums and galleries, including The New Museum of Contemporary Art and Deitch Projects. Ciocci’s work includes drawing, painting, craft, home-recording, photography, performance and animation. Her animated program will be loosely-based on her audio collage mix tapes and include a fully integrated video collage of inspiring women animators whom she admires. The screening will be followed by a Meet-the-Artist Q&A. Admission is free.
