bG presents a one night performance by Jocelyn Wright as part of its Bold Nostalgia exhibit. Jocelyn’s performances are an engaging mix of poetry, prose, and theater. Having completed seven years on The Closer as the executive drama supervisor, Jocelyn is thrilled to be done with murder and onto poetry. Her poetry and short stories have been published in several anthologies, featured on radio, and documentary. Showtime’s Women Stories Of Passion series produced her screenplay, The Feather. Her work speaks to the journey of a lover of sex, men, spiritual exaltation, and great ethnic food, who struggles to fuse it all together amidst the urban experiment in social Darwinism that is Los Angeles.
In Bold Nostalgia artists recontextualize vintage imagery and nostalgic subjects in contemporary ways. They create a mesh of conflicting emotions, including melancholia, joy, pain and sensuality.
