While chapbook editor Baus will read selections of various poems he’s been working on over the past year, Beaudoin will offer her subversive, humorous and thought-provoking take on women’s identity in popular culture through video, performance and wearable art. She’ll address the commercialization of sex and sexuality through literal translations of advertising-based cultural phenomena in pieces like “Locker Room Tease” and “Booty Pop,” which involve a ritual layering of clothing and temporary modifications to her body using padded underwear and bras.
Tonight’s performances begin at 7:30 p.m. at Counterpath, 613 22nd Street; the event is free. For more information, visit www.counterpathpress.org.
