Timothy Roseborough + Leila Weefur + Katie BusH
Oakland, Tuesday april 16th 7Pm
Leila Weefur (She/They/He) is an artist, writer, and curator who lives and works in Oakland, CA and received her MFA from Mills College. Weefur tackles the complexities of phenomenological Blackness through video, installation, printmaking, and lecture-performances. Using materials and visual gestures to access the tactile memory, Weefur explores the abject, the sensual and the nuances found in the social interactions and language with which our bodies have to negotiate space. Weefur is a recipient of the Hung Liu award, the Murphy & Cadogan award, and the Walter & Elise Haas Creative Work Fund. Weefur has worked with local and national institutions including SFMOMA, Southern Exposure, The Wattis, and Minnesota Street Project in San Francisco, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, and Smack Mellon in Brooklyn, New York. Weefur is the Audio/Video, Editor In Chief at Art Practical and a member of The Black Aesthetic.
Katie Bush is a LezBionic, installation artist/filmmaker, whose multidisciplinary creative work is strongly influenced by invisible airborne choreographies of ever-encroaching manmade surveillance systems, widely distributed judgements of morally-upright church herds, remorseless mall stampedes and the cosmic power of Earth & Space vagina. Her art works have been published in BoingBoing, Rhizome, The British Medical Journal, Dazed & Confused & in exhibitions / film festivals around the world since 1993. She holds an MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute & was one of YBCA.org's inaugural 'Freedom Fellows'. In 2014, she founded the Church of Vaginal Adoration (known as '#COVA' to devoted, cyber-friendly Ovarians) and has selflessly devoted her entire life to help globally spread the good vaginal (art) word.
