Gillian Wearing: Self Made (2010) + We Are Here (2014)

Presented in partnership with the Cincinnati Art Museum

Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.

“Would you like to be in a film? You can play yourself or a fictional character. Call Gillian.” An experimental documentary project that began with an open call newspaper ad, Self Made focuses on seven members of the public who explore their inner selves through a method-acting workshop.

Inspired by Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology, Wearing’s We Are Here features individuals from the artist’s native Birmingham (U.K) voicing piercing reflections on human frailty and their own lives." Gillian Wearing exposes layers of identity often kept hidden, drawing out the extent to which we perform versions of ourselves for the public sphere. This two-part film series, guest curated by Nathaniel Stein, complements the current Cincinnati Art Museum exhibition Life: Gillian Wearing. (109 min)
