"Narcissister Organ Player" — LAST DAY

(Nov. 7-20) — An eye-opening self-portrait by Narcissister, the Brooklyn-based performance artist whose work explores race, sexuality and body image with infinite candor and grace. A former dancer, Narcissister’s live shows amuse, shock, confound, and enchant in equal measure. With familial roots that are Moroccan, Jewish and African-American, she explores the intimacies of her relationship with a Jewish mother whose influence and support were critical in shaping the artist she is today. The double-ness of Narcissister’s stage personality (mostly naked, but with her face fully or partially masked) has its origins in the intensity of her identification with her mother, Sarah Benzaquen Lumpkin. Smartly edited by Taryn Gould, the film has as much to say about self-love as self-loathing in women’s lives.

Presented with support from the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation Fund.
