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.
