The Screening Room
Monday, November 28, 2016. 6‐10pm
On view through – January 27, 2017
The Screening Room is pleased to present Traveling Lady, a solo exhibition by Colombian‐born artist Jessica Mitrani curated by Francine Birbragher‐ Rozenscwaig. The installation conjures the daring spirit of Nellie Bly, the nineteenth‐century American journalist who circled the globe in seventy‐two days, carrying little more than the clothes on her back and a jar of cold cream.
Originally presented as a live performance with film, Traveling Lady has been reimagined for The Screening Room as a site‐specific installation. A selection of videos are projected onto three surfaces: a long curved screen with Rossy de Palma as Traveling Lady; a suspended canvas bag, and an eight‐foot‐tall coat illuminated by patterns, colors and textures evoking a voyage around the world. The black leather bag that Nellie Bly carried with her is also on display, open to reveal its contents: three items of silk clothing, a jar of cold cream, a porcelain box for the perfect pill, a tea cup, a leather manual, and a hopelessness scale for measuring emotions. Transcending the realms of the psychological, the physical, and the cosmic, iconic Spanish actress Rossy de Palma embodies this timeless figure in Jessica Mitrani’s fantastic and subversive world.

"Back to School" with Ryan McNamara,
On Friday in Queens, MoMA PS1 hosted its first ever “Back to School” benefit, under the direction of artist Ryan McNamara, with over 30 artists presenting projects and performances. It was an quite an evening! In some ways, it was very high school—there were classes like sex education, anatomy, and art history, and a cafeteria serving corn dogs—and in other ways it was very much not like high school in that there was quite a bit of alcohol and a fair number of scantily clad people, at least one wielding a whip. Below, a look at the evening. (Not pictured, my session with the guidance counselor, Jessica Mitrani, which included dancing salsa to Celia Cruz’s “La Vida Es un Carnaval.” It was the highlight of the evening.) - ArtNews, By Maximilíano Durón
