NEW YORK, NY.- Vanity Projects is thrilled to present Girls, Girls, Girls, a video program curated by Rita de Alencar Pinto, that explores the many facets of the female persona as portrayed by ten female video artists. The exhibition will take place at the salon located at 99 Chrystie Street, 2F from August 12 through September 25, 2013. Vanity Projects is open daily from noon to 8PM.

Girls, Girls, Girls features work by Sophie Lisa Beresford, Jen Denike, Keren Cytter, Marta Dell’Angelo, Jeesu Kim, Kristin Lucas, Tala Madani, Shana Moulton, Shannon Plumb and Eve Sussman – each exploring the humorous, intellectual, sardonic, passionate, complex, shy, serious, spiritual, neurotic, paranoid and conceited through the many characters and vignettes these artists employ, revealing glimpses into the female psyche.

Sophie Lisa Beresford (b. 1986 Sunderland, UK) graduated from Sunderland University in 2008. Exhibitions include Group Exhibition, VeSch, Vienna; Moving Image, New York; Mural Newspaper, Abrons Art Center, New York; NADA Art Fair 2010, Miami; Sideshow, Nottingham; Psychic Geography, Workplace Gallery; Dancing, The Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle; /Slab in the City, Sunderland; TOMORROW THE FUTURE, Fishmarket Gallery, Northampton; and "All My Favourite Singers Couldn't Sing...", Workplace Gallery, Tyne & Wear. In 2010 Beresford was awarded The Journal Culture Awards- Newcomer of the Year. Sophie Lisa Beresford lives and works in Sunderland, UK.

Jen Denike – born in 1971 – and lives and works in New York. With video, photography, sculpture, and performance, DeNike harmonizes these elements together to create a sensory experience and immersive environment for the viewers. Her work articulates her interest in the choreography of ritual as forms, sites and artifacts. DeNike has had her work featured in numerous museum exhibitions, including a solo show at the KW Institute for Contemporary art in Berlin (2006) and group shows in 2006 at MoMA/PS1 and Bard's Center for Curatorial Studies.

New York-based Keren Cytter was born in 1977 in Tel Aviv, Israel. Recent solo exhibitions of Cytter’s work include: Show Real Drama, Tate Modern Oil Tanks, London (2012); Avalanche, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (2011); and Project Series: Keren Cytter, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2010). In 2006, Cytter was awarded the prestigious Bâloise Art Prize at Art Basel for The Victim, a film composed as an infinite loop in which five unnamed protagonists meet over dinner, culminating in a suicide that repeatedly takes us back to the beginning of the scene. Cytter is also the author of three novels.

Based in Milan, Marta dell’Angello works with the brain and the body in a biological and metaphysical context. She is inspired by the physiological mechanisms that guide our movements and actions. Through on-going research on the female body, she has isolated various postures that give shape to specific states of mind. Her work spans all genres and includes video to probe the emotional responses that are discovered through her intense research.

Jeesu Kim was born in Daegu, Korea, and currently lives and works in New York.

Kristin Lucas (b. 1968) is a New York-based multidisciplinary artist working in video, installation, live, networked and hybrid media art forms. Lucas' work responds to the uncanny overlaps of virtual and lived realities, and to the fast-changing mediascape that reconfigures our perception and identity. Her work has been featured as solo exhibitions at Postmasters Gallery, New York; Windows, Brussels, Belgium; and O.K. Center for Contemporary Arts, Linz, Austria, among others. Her work was included in the 1997 Biennial Exhibition of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and in group exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, Artists Space and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York. She teaches at Bard College, New York.

Born in Tehran in 1981, Tala Madani is one of the most engaging painters of her generation. After receiving her MFA from Yale University School of Art in 2006, Madani made her solo debut in 2007. Recent solo exhibitions include: Rip Image, Moderna Museet Malmö & Stockholm (2013); The Jinn, Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam (2011); Manual Man, Pilar Corrias, London (2011). Recent group exhibitions include: The Future Generation Art Prize@Venice 2013, Palazzo Contarini Polignac, Venice (2013); No Borders, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Bristol (2013); and Speech Matters, Danish Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venice (2011). Madani lives and works in Los Angeles.

Shana Moulton – born 1976 – studied at the University of California, Berkeley and Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh where she received her MFA. Her video work has been screened and exhibited internationally, including at Art in General, New York; Migros Museum, Zurich; and Contemporary Museum of Art, Uppsala. Moulton's performances have been presented at venues including The Kitchen, New York; PERFORMA 09, New York; Socrates Sculpture Park, New York; among others. Moulton lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Shannon Plumb's cinematic studies of life's various roles and characters explore the complexities embedded in the ordinary and extraordinary. From the humble persona of a new mother to iconic figures from the silver screen, Plumb portrays these characters with zest and humor. Inspired by the curious spirit of slapstick comedy and the physical humor of silent film legends such as Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Plumb employs a low-fi aesthetic by using Super-8 film, stationary camera shots, long takes and hand-made props and costumes. Plumb is a one-woman show starring as all characters and acting as the creative force behind her films. Plumb lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
