The Henry Art Gallery just opened a great retrospective of Lynn Hershman Leeson’s work in a variety of disciplines. (You can read my review in next week’s issue.) In conjunction with the exhibition, they’re showing most of Hershman Leeson’s films in the Henry Auditorium. One screening (Teknolust) is already over—sorry I failed to alert you earlier. You can still catch Conceiving Ada, which screens tomorrow at 2 pm, and her short films and video diaries will screen over the next two weeks. See this page for a complete schedule.
In the meantime, check out Hershman Leeson’s interactive online chat-bot Agent Ruby. Yesterday I got Ruby to tell me she has womanly proportions, her eyes are blue, green, and brown and she has red wires instead of hair.
