Gender identity and feminist theory -- "I would like to say that the content in this show references these issues in a subtle way. What I am more interested in, is the dialog that happens afterwards or before," says curator and INKUB8 artist resident Liz Ferrer about Spectual Sextrum: Audio/Visual "Queer" 'Lecture', a multi-layered and multi-genre-approached lecture concerning radicalism and homosexuality and their seeming lack of connection within South Florida proper. Knowing that this project alone will not resolve issues but rather invite dialogue and continued exploration, it "is performative research for new pieces" she will conceptualize in the coming months.
Artist Michael Anthony Farley as Ellen Degenerate
Fueled by a recent performance by New York-based artist Kalan Sherrad, which involved music and dancing wearing very little clothing and a nude bra in front of the infamous "God hates fags" Westboro Baptist Church, as well as Ferrer's own questions concerning radicalism within Miami's art scene, this "lecture" goes beyond the droll and academic rigor of speakers and panels for an inclusive frontal attack on the senses.
