BAD ROMANCE

Screening and Performance

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Friday, February 17th, 7:00 pm, $7-10

Bad Romance features video works by performers and video artists that play with well-worn conventions of portraying seduction, romantic relationships, or intimate encounters in popular culture. The artists included in this screening expose the underlying mechanics of creating these seductive, and often instructive, images and scenes. They place themselves or their loved ones in front of the camera, employ illuminating voice-overs, construct awkward revelations and propose humorous antidotes to problematic romantic tropes.
