All the Reasons presents 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 Eels (1999) and Michael Robinson’s Onward Lossless Follows (2017).

In person, via Zoom: co-curators Mariah Garnett and Aimee Goguen
