Bad Girls Video (Program 1): She Laughed When She Saw It
January 14 – February 27 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.
This program of shorts featured bad girl artists who have little problem expressing themselves in public, in parody, or in challenging stereotypes and perceptions about racial and sexual identity. John and Yoko, guys on the street, and avenging cheerleaders were portrayed in these tapes by artists who humorously explored political and personal issues.
