New York-based video artist Diane Teramana will screen a few of her videos created in the early ’90s as a response to the controversy over the Robert Mapplethorpe obscenity trial. Teramana videotaped the opening of The Perfect Moment in Cincinnati and made a subsequent film documenting “current nation artists who don’t mind letting it ‘all hang out,’ ” she says in her artist statement. The film demonstrates Mapplethorpe’s connection to other contemporary artists who, in performance, sculpture, painting and installation, have likewise depicted the nude form without a hint of shame or resultant debate.


7-9 p.m. Saturday. Free. 2940 Colerain Ave., Camp Washington, wavepoolgallery.org
