REDCAT is proud to present All the Reasons, short films made by moving image artists who play with embodiment, queerness, identity, sexuality and the grotesque. By turns pornographic, silly, anxious, titillating, and horrifying, these works look at the world askance, while dealing with the messiness of having a body. Co-curated by two moving image artists, the selection aims at shifting the films’ usual screening conditions (galleries or museums) to an innovative online single-channel viewing experience. Made from outsiders’ perspectives, not to fit spectators’ expectations but to create discomfort, these pieces are now transported to another setting where they don’t necessarily “belong.” The title of the program is loosely inspired by 100 Reasons—a provocative 1991 collaboration between Sheree Rose, Bob Flanagan and Mike Kelley. Other titles include: Patty Chang’s Untitled (Eels) (2001) and Michael Robinson’s Onward Lossless Follows (2017). 
This program contains sexually explicit content. For mature audiences only.

“[Mike Kelley was] one of the most influential American artists of the past quarter century and a pungent commentator on American class, popular culture and youthful rebellion.”

The New York Times“[Patty Chang’s Untitled (Eels)] calls attention to the viewer’s own darker zones of fantasy and desire.”
