Cecilia Dougherty

Born - Lancaster, PA

Cecilia Dougherty's videotapes explore the nature of women's relationships to family life, society and the everyday, as well as feminist analysis of lesbian sexuality, psychologies, and relationships inside a culture that is, at best, indifferent and at worst, hostile. She often uses methodologies borrowed from documentary and biography to map contemporary realities over pop-historical icons creating work that deals with nostalgia, popular culture, and an extension of the idea of what is contemporary and what is behind us as a society.
