Dimensions Variable presents Finishing School, a film screening of video works by female artists who integrate elements of performance and video art. The screening was curated by Ania Moussawel and features work by Hilary Basing, Alison Brady & Sarah Knobel, Felecia Carlisle, Kayla Delacerda, Kika Espejo, Carly Gaebe, Ahrong Han, Faith Holland, Paloma Izquierdo, Allison Kaufman, Shiyuan Liu, Mollie Mckinley, Ania Moussawel, Christina Pettersson, Celia Rowlson-Hall, Antonia Wright, Ruben Millares and Heidi Zito.

Finishing School presents a selection of video works by artists who integrate elements of performance and video art. Early video artists from the 1970s such as Martha Rosler and Elinor Antin used performance to help bring notions about female image and inevitably the relationship between women and the art making process into focus. Those ideas continue to resonate in the works presented, while bringing forth contemporary concerns and approaches. The selected videos vary in content but have in common the staged performance for the camera.
