“The Magic Window” by Desiree Holman

Three Channel Video work installed at Machine Project from October 11 – November 1, 2008

TRT: 15 minutes

Opening Reception
Saturday, October 11, 2008
8pm

Please join us for the opening of Desiree Holman‘s installation at Machine Project on Saturday, October 11th at 8pm. Desiree recreates the staging of classic family sitcoms like the Cosby Show and Roseanne, and uses these as sets for a masked cast of characters in her video “The Magic Window”. She explores the idea of role-play in her performances and videos, prompting viewers to think about the performative nature of everyday life.

Not to be missed, especially if you’ve ever fantasized about the cast of Roseanne inviting the Huxtables over for a massive dance party. This show will be up for the entire month of October.

A preview video can be seen here
