ARTIST TALK and Screening - Saturday, July 11th 6 to 9pm

With Feral Women, Katrina del Mar continues to explore the theme of the wild women who break with convention - an obsession she's had since childhood. The wildness in women, sometimes overt, sometimes subtle is, for del Mar, a source or the divine. Large scale, hi-octane, full color, super-saturated photographs could be scenes from forgotten, fantastic films. The high hard femme, the bad girl, the rocker, the biker, the surfer-selkie - are icons of a new feminist pantheon.


“Katrina del Mar is perhaps best known for her decades-long work in video and photography, chronicling the reality and illusion of her Lower East Side friends and lovers as punk heroines; or within her girl gang movie world of strictly female population. Creating a family tree indebted equally to B-movies and diaristic photography, del Mar’s defiantly queer photographs and videos are iconic alternatives to the cultural status quo, offering an exuberant, hyper-stylized sexuality, an unapologetic feminist voice, and often guerilla-style production tactics.” – Participant Inc.

“erotic, empowered and electric—think the best parts of feminism and queer theory mixed with sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.” -Phillip Miner Huffington Post

“Katrina Del Mar has been active in underground film, photography and erotic fiction for two decades, and her vision is as transcendent as it is transgressive” -Carlo McCormick

“Del Mar has captured New York’s last gasp of authenticity, transforming it for eternity…” – JP Borum
