Coming to You To Not Be With You
The program screened within the framework of Coming to You To Not Be With You in Yerevan, comprised of video works by Armenian contemporary women artists produced since 2000. The works shared a concern with the issues of the body and sexuality in the specific experiences of Armenian women artists. They articulate the body as sites for contestation of identity construction.
The aim of the program was to historicize WOW's activities as well as contexualize them within the larger representational and identity discourses in Armenia.
