Gone
Cecilia Dougherty, 2001
Gone is loosely based on an episode of An American Family, a PBS series from the early 1970s that included one of the first openly gay characters on television—and foreshadowed the development and appeal of reality TV. Cecilia Dougherty's project also explores the complexities of family life, queer identity, and community, but inserts contemporary artists and writers (including Amy Sillman and Laurie Weeks) into the narrative. The video includes music by Le Tigre and Mike Iveson and was completed during a residency in the Art & Tech post-production studios in 2001. Dougherty lives and works in New York City and teaches at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College. (37 mins., video)
