Dynasty Handbag: Eternal Quadrangle (world premiere screening)

Cover Image:

The New Museum presents the world premiere of a new video work by Jibz Cameron, starring her alter ego Dynasty Handbag. A very special postmodern, post-performance performance of a Q&A and Awards Ceremony follows.

Eternal Quadrangle
This latest green screen adventure finds Dynasty Handbag on a dating game show where she must choose between 4 contestants vying for a spot in her vast cosmic emptiness. The bachelors are: an aggressively ambitious professional golfer, a hard-luck stray dog, a disembodied brain, and, of course, the grim reaper himself. All have attractive qualities and perhaps sustainable methodologies for dealing with life, but must she choose just one? And why are these her only choices?
