SKIN! TRADE: FILM AND TALK

Presented at:
Hallwalls

OUT OF THE BLUE, a Super 8 film made by Gwendolyn, a veteran sex trade worker from Canada. The film was made in response to a commission by Toronto's A Space calling for Super 8 explorations of women's eroticism made by politically active non-filmmakers. Gwendolyn and Alan Sondheim will lead a discussion after the screening.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
