24/7 at Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, Free
In the "Mating Ritual Series," artist Sidney Mullis performs as invented animals to build a domain of alternative biology and culture. Interested in what constitutes “sexy,” Mullis’ video series stems from studying rap music and videos that instruct women how to perform their sex appeal. This media’s lyrics, which is evocative of mating rituals for contemporary culture, often directs women to “push it,” “shake it,” or “wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.”
With these performance-based videos, Mullis portrays invented genders to understand how woman is realized and, furthermore, performed. This proposed kingdom, however, is not suggesting itself as something to be strived for. It is a visual playground to speculate boundaries of gender performance.
