Anne McGuire in person!

Anne McGuire is a San Francisco-based video artist whose “private cabarets” expose the formal elements of another era’s media mannerisms and lay bare their cultural mores. Her works contain elements of impersonation and performance, personal exorcism and autobiography, wit and media critique. A survey of her short works to date, tonight’s program includes All Smiles and Sadness (1999) starring George Kuchar, I Am Crazy and You’re Not Wrong (1997), Joe DiMaggio 1, 2, 3 (1991), and Turn Table (2005), among others. Co-presented by the Video Data Bank and CATE. 1991-2006, Anne McGuire, USA/Taiwan, ca. 90 min, video.
