Dangerous curves: a conversation about performance and politics

With Rosamond S. King, Gabrielle Civil, and Attillah Springer 

Tuesday 22 March, 7 pm, at Alice Yard

From Fugue (Da, Montréal), a performance work by Gabrielle Civil

What is the difference between art that is political, art that is about politics, and politic interventions that are artistic? Does it matter which of these we call “art” and which are considered activism? And when it comes to performative works and actions by women, is it ever possible for the female body — public, nude, or semi-nude — to not be read as political?

Artist, writer, scholar, and current Alice Yard resident Rosamond S. King will join artist Gabrielle Civil and activist Attillah Springer for an informal conversation on these and other questions about performance and politics.

All are invited, and audience members are welcome to join the discussion.
