Alice Yard presents ‘Dangerous curves: a conversation about performance and politics’

Gabrielle Civil

Rosamond S. King  joins artist Gabrielle Civil and activist Attillah Springer in ‘Dangerous curves: a conversation about performance and politics’ on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 at 7:00pm at Alice Yard. Alice Yard is located at 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain, Trinidad. All are invited, and audience members are welcome to join the discussion.

What is the difference between art that is politic, 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.
