Make sure the boss isn’t looking! This YouTube Assembly is NSFW! Adebukola Bodunrin and Fred Sasaki have compiled the best of the worst, horrible to hilarious, boredom busting videos. An evening ranging from the tragic to the comedic; Fred will present the fabulous taboo, featuring hot Jewish girls, a Japanese erection, and dancing! Keep watching as Buki sticks it to the man with a collection featuring regular folks making videos while on the clock, those damn kids subverting and taking advantage of corporate identity, and even more dancing!

Adebukola Bodunrin is a film, video, and installation artist who explores language, culture, and media. Bodunrin completed her Master of Fine Arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been screened or exhibited nationally and internationally at venues that include the Jersey City Museum of Art, the Scope Art Fair, Onion City Film Festival, the Chicago Underground Film Festival and Festival Animator, Poland. She lives and works in Chicago.

Fred Sasaki publishes humorous writing in places like Roctober, the Iowa Review, and MAKE. He is the associate editor of Poetry magazine.

The YTA consists of screening web-based video for a live and participating audience. Each YTA features 2 hosts that use YouTube to elaborate on a point of interest relevant to their artwork or creative practice. After the “talk” the assembly opens for dialog, giving audience members the opportunity to pull up videos in response or that are relevant to the topic. It’s halfway between an artist talk and film screening; yet goes beyond their conventions by channeling the social possibilities of the medium.
