Video Playlist: Inside/outside

Curated by Molly Hewitt

Video Playlist is a recurring series of one night public video screenings programmed in response to MoCP exhibitions. For Disruptive Perspectives, Molly Hewitt curates a screening that looks past the exhibiting artists’ genders and sexualities and draws attention to the private spaces they inhabit, and how these private spaces bleed into public life. Hewitt's response centers on the overwhelming feeling of history, legacy and family that is inseparable from the artists' and subjects' intimate romantic relationships.
