MX is pleased to present a screening of Frame, a film by Chelsea Knight. In this video, a group of male and female construction workers assemble a steel structure while speaking from feminist theoretical texts and poems. The piece is shown inside a built construction environment mirroring the one in the video, and is accompanied by architectural photographs.
Frame seeks to problematize the stereotypes of a traditionally male form of labor and other socially defined gender roles through the performance of feminist readings about women’s labor and the body. It also seeks to explore the ways we perform our class and gender, and how the relationships between men and women are written.
