MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma presents “SHE DEVIL 5″, the latest in the series of video screenings on the theme of female identity, named after the famous 1989 film by Susan Seidelman, and which alludes to the diabolic and bizarre spirit of female experience and investigation of everyday things.

SHE DEVIL was devised in 2006 by Stefania Miscetti for Italian and international female artists and curators, from the youngest to the most successful. Different works and critical perspectives coexist in a multivocal discourse which reveals the many facets of the female world and vision. This broad spectrum of activities and aims can be seen in the exhibitions that have been organised over the past years, which have included 40 video works and involved 24 curators, as well as a special international edition held in Bucharest in 2009. As part of its summer 2011 exhibition cycle, MACRO is hosting a new edition of the project, now in its fifth year, an event that is perfectly in line with the galaxy of cultural and artistic proposals that have defined the identity of the Museum over the past few years. On the opening night the videos in this new edition will be presented in the conference room of the Museum’s new wing, the nerve centre of the New MACRO exhibition area. The wing, too, was designed by a woman, the architect Odile Decq, thus it is the perfect setting for the presentation of the video works.

On the opening evening of June 24, there will be a special screening in the V-Tunnel, the video area in the museum foyer, of a selection of videos from past editions, featuring works of international artists, like Mary Zigouri and Mathilde Ter Hejin, together with some major figures from the Italian scene, like Marinella Senatore and Luana Perilli.

For the rest of the summer, the V-Tunnel will be hosting the videos of the new edition, as part of MACRO’s broad and varied exhibition programme set within the enveloping spatiality of the museum.
