Screening: Sadie Benning Videoworks

Sadie Benning first made her name in the early 1990s as a teenage video maker.Raised by her mother in inner-city Milwaukee, Benning left school at age 16, primarily due to the homophobia she experienced.Her earliest works, made from the time she was 15, were shot with the Fisher-Price Pixelvision camera, which recorded pixelated, black and white video images onto standard audio cassettes. They give and astonishingly personal insight into the emerging sexual and social identity of a sharp, creative teenage mind.
