Bad Girls Video (Program 2): Female Friends
March 5 – April 10 1994
Between January 14 and April 10, 1994 the New Museum presented the two part exhibition “Bad Girls.” Organized by Marcia Tucker, “Bad Girls Part I” ran from January 14 to February 27, 1994, while “Bad Girls Part II” ran from March 5 to April 10, 1994. Each exhibition featured a video program organized by guest curator Cheryl Dunye. An independent sister exhibition titled “Bad Girls West” was organized by guest curator Marcia Tanner and ran concurrently at the UCLA Wight Gallery in Los Angeles from January 25 to March 20, 1994.
Ranging from the surreal to the all too real, the videos featured in “Female Fiends” invited viewers to explore a variety of issues by a group of artists who really want to make them laugh… their way. Provocative, subversive, funny, and informative, the program drew from media, history, and memory.
Total running time: 107 minutes
