Once More, with Feeling investigates the gendered economy of emotional expression and its relationship to contemporary art. Exploring the gaps between fantasy and reality, labor and leisure, free and working time, the artists in this exhibition—based in the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East—grapple with how changing definitions of work have informed their own processes as artists, workers, and women.

Dimensions Variable is pleased to present Finishing School, a one night screening of video works by artists who integrate elements of performance into their video work. The screening will take place at Dimensions Variable on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 7 - 10:30 pm.

Finishing School presents a selection of video works by female artists who integrate performance and video art in their practice. Early video artists from the 1970s such as Martha Rosler and Elinor Antin used performance to help bring notions about female image and inevitably the relationship between women and the art making process into focus. Those ideas continue to resonate in the works presented, while bringing forth contemporary concerns and approaches. The selected videos vary in content but have in common the staged performance for the camera.
