Arclight Cinemas Shine a Light on Women in Entertainment
Huffington Post - over 1 year
In her 2014 Best Actress Academy Award acceptance speech for Blue Jasmine, Cate Blanchett thanked the audiences who went to see the film and then said - There are those of us in the industry who are foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche experiences, they are not. Audiences want to see them, and in fact, they earn money. The world is round, people. This was rightly met with thunderous applause. I don't know where Cate will be this Thursday, November 5th, but I believe she would be thrilled about Arclight Cinemas' inaugural Women In Entertainment summit, a full day (8:30am to 5pm) of forward-thinking conversations exploring a variety of topics that greatly impact women: from human rights and women's leadership to storytelling across platforms and empowering the next generation of women to emerge as creative powerhouses. All events will take place in Hollywood's iconic Cineramadome on Sunset Boulevard. Cate Blanchett's 2014 Academ ...

Chloe Sevigny Absolutely HATES LA
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It's a common refrain for East Coast transplants in Los Angeles: there's nowhere to walk, LA residents are shallow and the loneliness is unbearable. But when actress Chloe Sevigny starts tearing into LA in her beautiful, sun-filled canyon home to complain about how there's a marijuana dispensary on every corner and the constant sunshine is giving everyone melanoma, something starts feeling a little... off. Stay tuned to the end for the twist! Warning: this video contains some crotch shots and toilet scenes. The film, called "Magic Hour," was directed by fashion designer Tara Subkoff and written by both Subkoff and filmmaker Tatiana Von Furstenberg for MOCAtv. Thanks to Curbed LA for pointing us to the short send-up of LA-haters.

    Subkoff made her directorial debut in 2014 with the horror film #Horror (2015), which details a group of wealthy adolescent girls who experience a night of violence and terror after a social media game is tinged with cyberbullying.
    More Details Hide Details The film was screened out of competition at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, and was picked up for distribution by IFC Midnight, slated for a limited release in November 2015. According to Subkoff, she conceived the film after a conversation she'd had with her friend's daughter: "idea started because I asked my friend's daughter, "What is horror, to you?" This girl was cyberbullied very badly... Now, I was bullied badly as a kid, but I could always change schools. I could always go home. Now you can't…when bullying follows you home, and there's no escape and no end, to me, that's horror. And to so many girls, that's just life."
    In 2014, she made her debut as a director with the horror film #Horror (2015), which was picked up for distribution by IFC Midnight.
    More Details Hide Details Subkoff was born in Westport, Connecticut. Her father was an antiques dealer who owned an antique store on 13th Street in Manhattan, and her mother was a schoolteacher in East Harlem. She grew up in what she described as a "bohemian" family, and attended boarding school at the Williston Northampton School in Massachusetts. After graduation, she attended the Parsons School of Design, but dropped out within a year of enrolling.
  • 2013
    Age 40
    In 2013, she collaborated with Milla Jovovich on a filmed installation in Venice, Italy titled "Future/Perfect," which had Jovovich enclosed in a glass house, surrounded by boxes with consumer logos, artwork, and clothing.
    More Details Hide Details Though working predominantly in art, Subkoff also had a minor appearance in the film, including Tanner Hall (2009) and Abandoned (2010), with Brittany Murphy.

  • 2012
    Age 39
    She exhibited a three hour long installation at the Bortolami Gallery in New York City during the 2012 New York Fashion Week titled "This is Not a Fashion Show," which featured a girl's choir in leotards performing “Carol of the Bells” (intimated as a "slight to Yuletide consumerism") and "performers aging from 8 to 70 pruned and posing in front of antique mirrors lining the gallery walls."
    More Details Hide Details In explaining the idea behind the show, Subkoff said: "We are a society that only sells commodities. We do not create anything unless it's to be bought and sold, so the idea of doing something where there isn't a commodity to sell, or what the commodity is to sell is very confusing, is extremely interesting to me."
    In 2012, Subkoff created a ten-day art installation and continuous performance piece at the Carlton Festival of the Arts in São Paulo, Brazil.
    More Details Hide Details She also conceptualized a performance piece in a group show curated by Dimitri Antonitsis in Hydra, Greece.

  • 2000
    Age 27
    In 2000, Subkoff began working on a project called Imitation of Christ with designer Matt Damhave, enlisting Chloë Sevigny as the project's creative director.
    More Details Hide Details Originally conceived as an art project, it has been described as "DIY art collective misconstrued as a luxury fashion label." Every piece of clothing in the line was sewn by hand and recycled from vintage, thrift and Goodwill shops. Subkoff created pieces of wearable art with her fashion shows which garnered her a cult following. Models who wore the pieces for runway shows included actress Scarlett Johansson. Reflecting on the line, Subkoff said: “We were talking about waste, throwing things away, and taking something that’s old and making it new again, putting the human hand back into a world that wreaks of manufacturing. It felt very appropriate to do that in 2000." Subkoff and Damhave created four collections together, and the shows were described as "guerilla-style, at least as much performance art as they were about Subkoff's refashioned, hand-sewn vintage clothes," with the project's earliest exhibitions taking place in a funeral parlor in the Manhattan's East Village.
