Catalyst presents: a single night event of Natalie Kovacs' video installation, "I'm Fine Without You." This video explores the psychological concepts of love, desire, femininity, and the performance of identity. The video examines the effects of expectation upon the development of potential relationships from a romanticized film perspective rather than a normative parent-example one. The project details the confusion experienced by expectations in the desire for a successful relationship that will be confronted by trying to develop and pursue a relationship through the tools of a failing one. These conceptions of love are not successful and will never result in a successful relationship.
What will satisfy my desire for fulfillment? To find what lay beyond it I throw away my inhibitions. EROGENOUS ZONE is a solo performance and installation exhibition by July Sunnyday.
Catalyst Gallery presents The Feeling of Dissonance to the Fullest Human Capacity, a solo installation by Maria Guerrero. This installation primarily wrestles with the complex and varied issues an artist struggles with when seeking to channel their creativity into an artistic expression, and also deals with familiar visual elements exemplified by popular canons found in American art education.
Catalyst Gallery presents "Entre," an exhibit by Svetlana Linetskaya and Joey Luu that explores the duality between gender, body image and perception. The exhibit emphasizes issues presented within the topic of the male and female gaze, specifically exploring the boundaries and limitations placed on men and women through the popular canons of body image and expected canons of sexuality.
