A November Is CUNYMonth Event
In THE JACKIE LOOK, Karen Finley brings icon Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis back to life in this unique look at history, style, trauma, femininity and the demands of being the First Lady. Using the structure of a lecture set in the present day, Jackie, one of the most photographed women of her day, contemplates her life in pictures. Jackie also makes use of You Tube and views online homages to her and her family. Along the way, Jackie ruminates on Michelle Obama, Caroline’s run for the Senate, the art world, and the lasting impact of that fateful day on the grassy knoll in Dallas.
Since her first performances in the early 1980s, KAREN FINLEY has become synonymous with performance art. She is the recipient of two Obies, two Bessies, and multiple grants from the NEA and NYSCA. She has toured internationally with pieces including Make Love, George & Martha, The American Chestnut, A Certain Level of Denial and The Return of The Chocolate Smeared Woman.
