Join Girls’ Club for a double feature of works from the collection by multi-disciplinary artists Jeanne Jaffe and Jen Clay.

View the premiere of Jeanne Jaffe’s Alice in Dystopia, a stop motion animation short film based on the classic novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In Jaffe’s dystopian tale, Alice and The Rabbit travel through the wrong rabbit hole and find themselves in a dark and destructive future. Through a mix of marionettes, live action, shadow puppetry and archival footage, Alice searches for meaning while encountering versions of the smoking Caterpillar, the author Lewis Carroll, an extinct Dodo bird and others.

Jen Clay’s film Episode combines performative sculpture, multiple types of animation and live action footage to illustrate a first person view of a dissociative episode for the viewer. Clay’s multi-media works often involve original textiles and animations for performance, video and installation that take inspiration from horror and science fiction genres, author H.P. Lovecraft stories of cosmic madness, and actual accounts of hallucinations and supernatural sightings.

The screening will be followed by an artist talk and Q&A.

All guests must bring and wear face masks while indoors.
Parking is available on NE 2 Avenue and Flagler Avenue. RSVP in the website link.
