The show features her large Head paintings as well as the two-projection video piece Play Pause. Two of Benning’s videos, It Wasn’t Love and German Song were included in a series of programs shown at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York in January, showcasing feminist work collected by the Chicago-based Video Data Bank.
Sadie Bennings shorts If Every Girl Had a Diary, Living Inside, Me and Rubyfruit and New Year, which meditate on issues of teen angst, first love and growing up queer in a small town, screened at Two Boots Pioneer Theater in New York in August.
