Sam Decoste: Cahun & Moore: Unframed

When: March 23-April 4 2015

Sam Decoste's MFA thesis exhibition Cahun & Moore: Unframed offers a glimpse into the activism of Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore by projecting animated sequences along three gallery walls. Born Lucy Schwob (1894 – 1954) and Suzanne Malherbe (1892 - 1972), these animations depict the two artists preparing the “poem-missives” they covertly distributed to German soldiers during WWII. A neighbouring projection animates Cahun's many 'selfies', questioning the accepted categories of gender identity. Opening reception March 23, 5-7:30pm. Artist talk April 2, 12pm.
