The Right & Left Brains of Casey Jane's

Co-presented by BB Dakota

Live Set from Dj Ana Calderon

Followed by a Q&A moderated by Brittani Nichols!

“I’M SMART, COOL, NICE—I DON’T NEED TO BE HERE” declares one of Casey Jane’s “brains”—two angel-and-devil-over-the-shoulder style personalities—when she gets fired in the first episode of The Right and Left Brains of Casey Jane’s, a new “branded content sitcom” for BB Dakota. Casey Jane Ellison—“the thinking person’s artist-comedian” (LA Times)—is already known for her performative comedienne / artist persona, honed in What the F*ashion (“a ready-to-watch fashion-themed spin off of her own life” for VFiles) and Touching the Art, a series of chats with female art world luminaries, in which a deadpan Ellison hurls absurd questions at her famed and respected panelists, only to cut them off with her own confessional responses. Bringing to mind the mind-boggling hyper-realities of video artist Ryan Trecartin (a clear influencer, and co-curator of “Surround Audience,” the New Museum Triennial which included Touching the Art) and trend forecasting collective K-HOLE, Ellison’s project with BB Dakota is a new kind of self-aware and hyperbolic “advertising,” and the first “branded content sitcom.” Join Cinefamily, Casey Jane Ellison, and BB Dakota for a screening of all 6 episodes!
