One of the contemporary art world’s most acclaimed mixed-media & performance artists, the masked and merkin-clad Narcissister is the subject of this smart, sassy documentary that showcases her spectacle-rich approach to explorations of gender, racial identity, and sexuality. Directed by the enigmatic artist herself, the film deconstructs her celebrated stage shows which combine dance, elaborate costumes, pop music hits, unabashed eroticism and heavy doses of humor. Narcissister will be attending the primetime screening for a Q&A on January 15, 7:00PM.
Q&A will be moderated by Alena J. Williams. She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of California, San Diego, where she teaches modern and contemporary art history and film and media studies.
“A fascinating avant-garde home-movie documentary psychodrama. She’s a prankish gender outlaw whose work is at once witty, shocking, disturbing, and supremely expressive of her feminine mystique. Narcissister is literally a one-woman head trip.” – Variety
“Not only illuminates [Narcissister’s] art, but also furthers her family’s story… An enigmatic performance (and performer) that thrives in absurdity yet isn’t afraid to play with sentimentality.” – Austin Chronicle
“A hybrid of performance art film and personal documentary on her relationship with her family.” – Filmmaker Magazine
