Dolly Wilde's Picture Show

When: Thu., Aug. 21, 8 p.m. and Fri., Aug. 22, 8 p.m. 2014

Combining live performance, multimedia, and the photographic series Oscaria/Oscar (1994), by SPIR Conceptual Photography (María DeGuzmán and Jill Casid), Dolly Wilde’s Picture Show tells the story of Oscar Wilde’s supposedly identical niece, one of the First World War’s first female “motor-drivers.” Traversing the no-man’s-land between memory and photography, the nineteenth century and the twentieth, Dolly struggles to build a revolutionary life in the ruins of history—as did her postwar generation.
