a conversation on feminist rage, artist-writer collaboration, and the archive — moderated by Tavia Nyong’o
Presented by the NYU Performance Studies Forum.
Wednesday, April 3rd
Department of Performance Studies
721 Broadway, 6th Floor, Studio 612
Moderated by Tavia Nyong’o, Performance Studies, New York University.
In conjunction with “Stand Close, It’s Shorter Than You Think”, an Artist Curated Projects (ACP) at The One National Gay and Lesbian Archive in Los Angeles. Examining the way rage is filtered and rethought in the work of contemporary queer and feminist artists, this conversation explores manifestations and responses to the thematic of rage in our current moment. “Stand Close” cocurator Katherine Brewer Ball, artists RJ Messineo (co-curator) and Guadalupe Rosales, and catalogue contributors Corrine Fitzpatrick and R.E.H. Gordon discuss the promises and pitfalls of thinking with rage as a meditation, an inspiration, a medium, and a process.
Co-sponsored by the NYU Department of Performance Studies and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.
