Video art organization Krissy Talking Pictures celebrates the opening of their exhibition Double Dare, on view July 17th-31st at Rhizome DC. KTP is a Philadelphia based video art organization and an alternative to art institutions that uplifts the work of queer artists through events and online programming. The show features artists Cherry Nin, France Rreally, Rat Porridge, Xhep, Alyssa Michener, Oona Taper, and Yellow 5 Yellow 6, and brings together video, new media, installation, sculpture and works on paper.
The opening reception will be held on 7/17/2021 from 4pm-6pm at Rhizome DC, 6950 Maple St NW, Washington, DC. The show runs through 7/30/2021. A digital iteration of the show is available online at www.rhizomedc.org.
Double Dare is a celebration of doubles, alternatives, and imagined worlds that can be found within our own. The show itself is doubled, existing both in the Rhizome DC galleries and online. By overlapping, the two iterations of the show work together to test the boundaries and porousness of physical and digital space. The work spans VR utopias, interactive examinations of our digital lives, meditations on memory and catharsis, and fantastical portals.
Krissy Talking Pictures has hosted video installation and multimedia events in DIY venues throughout Philadelphia. They are currently in the midst of Krissy On Tour, a virtual tour of college campuses, hosting screenings and discussions at universities including Haverford College, The University of Oxford, and Ohio State University. KTP believes in art as a means for survival, protest, expression and communication.
