Artist Marielle Plaisir will deliver her performance—Non verba—at the NSU Art Museum-Fort Lauderdale on February 2, 2017, 6:00-8:00pm. The museum is located at One East Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This event is free and open to the public.

In her performance piece Acta Non Verba, multimedia artist Marielle Plaisir exposes the ambivalent character of clothing and its conventions. While dressed in colonialist era costume and remaining seated in the Museum’s Regeneration Series: Anselm Kiefer from the Hall Collection exhibition for multiple hours, Plaisir will raise issues of being and appearing, domination, discrimination, and injustices relating to status and race. Born in France and raised in the French Caribbean [overseas] department, Guadeloupe, she combines painting, drawing, and performance art to present intense visual experiences. Since 2000, she has explored the notion of identity from a Caribbean viewpoint.
