Pamela Joseph’s Sideshow of the Absurd, a documentary short by Tina DiFeliciantonio and Jane C. Wagner, will be debuting at Aspen Film‘s Shortsfest 2015 on Saturday, April 11th, 2015. Inspired by nostalgia for early 20th-century freak shows, Pamela Joseph’s Sideshow of the Absurd is a cinematic exploration of a fantastical exhibition by this internationally recognized artist, who embraces ‘difference’ with irreverence, humor, and respect for the dignity of ‘the other’.
Pamela Joseph has visited the IEA several times as a visiting artist. During her residencies, Pamela made digital prints and produced an artist’s book based on her piece entitled The Hundred Headless Women.
