Suzanne Bocanegra’s immersive video installation Valley (2018) presents eight women artists reenacting Judy Garland’s wardrobe test for the 1967 cult film "Valley of the Dolls." Bocanegra cast in the role of Garland eight strong women whose own work involves different aspects of performance: poet Anne Carson, choreographer and dancer Deborah Hay, artist Joan Jonas, singer and actor Alicia Hall Moran, actor and activist Tanya Selvaratnam, actor Kate Valk, artist Carrie Mae Weems, and ballerina Wendy Whelan. In this mesmerizing installation, eight large-scale, synchronized projections show the costumed performers precisely recreating Garland’s gestures and expressions from her wardrobe test.
