The Final Girl – WPA June 3rd-24th 2011


Adam Dwight has curated a really cool show called The Final Girl showing at the WPA and opening on June 3rd, 6-8pm.

More info. here at the Pink Line Project.

“The Final Girl explores themes of feminism in the electronic visual age, exploiting cinematic conventions of the horror genre, which is notoriously known for its ambiguous treatment of the female narrative center. Instead of focusing on horror as a tool for populist consensus and social anxiety, the exhibition will raise questions about the genre’s grotesque and celebratory treatment of the female body.” – Excerpt from press release.

Here’s one of the 2 prints I’ll be lowering the tone of the show with. No, it ain’t no plastic squid!
