Joanie 4 Jackie videos and records

Title: Joanie 4 Jackie videos and records
Dates: 1990-2012, undated

Creator/Collector: July, Miranda, 1974-

Abstract: Joanie 4 Jackie, a video art project comprising "chainletters and zines," was established by interdisciplinary artist Miranda July in 1995 and later continued by students at Bard College. An active participant in the Riot Grrrl scene in the 1990s, July was frustrated by the lack of girls and women creating film and video -- particularly women of color, Queer women, women of lower socioeconomic strata, and older women -- and sought to remedy their absence with a project that embraced the "DIY" ethos of the Riot Grrrl subculture. The collection comprises over 300 videos, zines, and supporting materials collected, compiled, and circulated as part of the Joanie 4 Jackie project, as well as editing masters and videos documenting Joanie 4 Jackie events and media coverage. Also present are administrative files, correspondence relating to the project, posters, and ephemera.
