Celebrated performance artist Karen Finley presents Venus in Retrograde, a performance in two parts — Grabbing Pussy and Parts Known — that expands on Finley’s career-long pursuit of performatively articulating the injustices committed by the U.S. government and society at large. The performance examines loss of love, dignity, and humanity, and issues a call to beat back with an exquisite heart. Standing against a backdrop of film projections, Finley narrates a poetic call to action in resistance to today’s times.
