Public Programing


FEBRUARY 03, 2023
An evening of short film and live performance by Los Angeles-based artists Lauren Lee McCarthy and Lucy McRae. The gallery "double feature” opens with a screening of McRae's short film FUTUREKIN, followed by Lauren Lee McCarthy's evening-length "Surrogacy Performance In Progress." In conversation, the two works dissect the complex ideologies that have grown up around reproductive technology, and present new strategies for enacting body autonomy that are rooted in collective acts of care.

Rituals of Reproduction was hosted at Honor Fraser Gallery in conjunction with Future Sensitive, a solo exhibition by Lucy McRae.
