Michele O’Marah: Video Portraits | Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum
May 21 – July 17, 2011
“Michele O’Marah presents her well-known video portraits of Los Angeles-based artists, musicians, and friends, inspired by Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests (1964-66). At CAF, O’Marah will create a full-room, multi-channel installation of these videos that reads as a larger than life portrait of her community. O’Marah’s oeuvre explores the effects of popular culture, deconstructing in particular Hollywood genres and stereotypes, while involving the arts community as an active participant.”
