Conrad is one of the founding fathers of ’60s–’70s experimental film, and in this show—whose title stands for women in prison—he tackles the low-budget schlock genre of female-penitentiary melodrama as a way of examining conventions of antiauthoritarian expression in pop culture. On view is film originally shot in 1982 and ’83 (starring artists Tony Oursler and Mike Kelley), plus a re-creation of its jail-cell setting—outfitted with working plumbing and painted in feminine shades of pink and yellow.
