Film Screening



A film by K8 Hardy

Wednesday, February 7, 7:00 PM

Brattle Theatre

40 Brattle Street, Cambridge

K8 Hardy’s structuralist and experimental film Outfitumentary is both performance and video record of the artist’s changing sense of self and style over an eleven-year period. In 2001, before the ubiquity of Instagram and selfies, K8 Hardy set out to document her daily outfits on a fairly consistent, if not daily basis. Hardy used the same mini-DV Camera and filmed in ever-changing living spaces and art studios in New York. The resulting 80-minute film is an affecting and personal exploration of queer identity and the way in which the materiality of the body and its subsequent “outfitting” – in private and public life – serves to refine, define, and probe the body politic.

The screening will be introduced by the artist and followed by a Q&A.

Tickets $7.
