Talk by Deirdre Logue

Sep 23, 2010



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


6:30 p.m.


Artist-in-residence Deirdre Logue presented a screening of past video works and new works-in-progress developed while at Western Front. The program featured select chapters from her project Enlightened Nonsense (1997–2000) including the video Tape (2000); selections from the portrait series Why Always Instead of Sometimes (2003–06) including Per Se (2005) and Beyond the Usual Limits 1 (2005); and excerpts from Lady and the Tramp (2011) and Rough Count (2006). 

Throughout the screening, Logue was joined onstage by respondent Judy Radul for a conversation. Using the presented video works as a point of departure, they discussed Logue’s approach to portraiture, in-camera editing, performance for the camera, and the influence of early feminist and conceptual video art practices on her work. The evening closed with a casual question and answer period with the audience.

Video documentation is available upon request.
