Artists Madelyne Beckles and Delilah Rosier will explore the inherent contradictions of the derivative of joy in entertainment, versus the hard-lines of moralistic and dogmatic readings of pop cultural texts as they insert themselves into film parodies of competition, dating show and documentary style reality television.
Madelyne Beckles is an artist and cultural critic based out of Montreal. Her work centres on themes of narcissism, self deprecation, consumption, and shame which she attempts to deconstruct through a feminist critical race framework. She has most notably performed at Art Basel Miami, Art Production Fund, and Freize Art Fair New York and MOMA. She has been profiled on The New York Times Magazine, C magazine and has written for New York Art Quarterly and Canadian Art Magazine.
