Collaborative Gestures

WDD25/The Cult of the Woman

Saturday 19 January, 2 to 7 pm, at Alice Yard

On Saturday 19 January, Alice Yard will host two informal events examining creative collaboration:

From 2 to 5 pm, the We Does Draw group will meet with artist Christopher Cozier for a conversation about his Development Patterns project, which invites open participation in his upcoming exhibition In Development at David Krut Projects in New York.

From 5 to 7 pm, Barbadian artist Shanika Grimes — currently artist in residence at Alice Yard — and her Trinidadian counterpart Michelle Isava will present the collaborative performance The Cult of the Woman, investigatinghow women indoctrinate other women into submission to men” and the relationship of food and gender roles in both Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.

Both events are open to the public and all are invited.

Dear Performers
This debate and research interests me quite a bit, as I feel that women also inhibit/place restrictions on other women in regards to exploration of societal boundaries and gender roles...Would be curious to know what are your thoughts on this matter...In setting up these restrictions is this connected to religion or where exactly and why are these norms being extended and enforced...What do these roles and patterns of norms serve to justify...
All the Best Michelle Eistrup
