LADA is thrilled to present a screening of films and video artworks by the visual and performance artist, filmmaker and musician Kembra Pfahler (b. 1961, Hermosa Beach, CA, USA).
Formative in the LA punk scene in the 1970s, Pfahler is perhaps most widely recognised for her leading role in downtown New York’s underground scene in the 1980s and ‘90s, in particular as the lead singer of the theatrical and horror-inspired glam, punk-shock-rock band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black. Co-founded in 1990, TVHOKB’s legendary live performances incorporate music, drawings, hand-made props, photography and film to dismantle existing paradigms of femininity and advance her philosophies of availabilism, anti-naturalism and beautilism.
We are very pleased to be joined by Kembra for this event who will be in conversation with curator and performer Phoebe Patey-Ferguson following the screenings.
