Today marks the premiere of The Right & Left Brains Of Casey Jane’s, the new web series from the artist and comedian Casey Jane Ellison, who was included in the 2015 New Museum Triennial. It was commissioned by a clothing company called BB Dakota.
Judging from the first episode, the series’ title can be taken pretty literally. It follows a job performance meeting between Ellison and her boss (played by the filmmaker Leilah Weinraub) and includes multiple green-screen fantasy cutaways featuring two of the artist, flanked to the left and right of the screen. Spoiler alert: Ellison gets fired.
The web series is an increasingly popular forum for young artists to interface with corporations and organizations. This is not Ellison’s first: last year, she was the host of Touching The Art for Ovation, an all-female panel show exploring contemporary art concerns. She also hosted a fashion spoof serial called WHAT THE F*SHION for VFILES in 2013.
