FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23 @GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE
6-7pm: aesthetics of radicality/politics of aesthetics working group and public discussion: on the aftermath, effects, and consequences of performance art, and on the political ramifications of direct action framed as art.
8pm: Performance by Chun Hua Catherine Dong
9-11pm INCORRUPTIBLE FLESH
Incorruptible Flesh investigates the performative body as a site for ritual, sacrifice, and transformation. Departing from mythic and syncretic ideas of the sacred and the profane, participating artists/audiences embody the role of sacrificial medium––a fraught tether articulating the violent spaces between the spirit and the flesh.
“The only gift is a portion of thyself. Thou must bleed for me.”
