About this event

For this programme, artist Vivienne Dick has selected films relating to sex made by women beginning with Gunver Nelson’s extraordinary film, ‘Take Off, (1972), depicting a mature stripper with a surprising ending.

Tessa Hughes Freeland’s Baby Doll (1982) documents the urban demi-monde of two Go-Go dancers in downtown Manhattan, while Rachel Garfield’s Art Sex Work (2022) is a nuanced reflection on sex work today. Southwark Spring (2017) by filmmakers Bev Zalcock and Sarah Chamber’s is a lo-fi joyous ode to life with a dramatic soundtrack by Pierre Henry. The final film, Christmas on Earth first introduced the Velvet Underground to Warhol.
