Performing Idea: Reciprocal Aesthetics

Author: Julie Tolentino, Ron Athey | Reference: D2104

Performance Matters, Performing Idea – Reciprocal Aesthetics 7th October 3:00-7:30pm Toynbee Studios. The participation of the spectator in making the meaning of the work of art has been a staple of art and performance practices long before the recent charged debates on ‘relational aesthetics.' Yet art, however solitary, is arguably always a kind of collaboration and involves itself in some form of exchange. What can be at stake in this exchange? Speakers will examine the notion and limits of the idea that contemporary art and performance is a reciprocal affair. They will ask what gets transacted in contemporary art? What is given and what is taken, what is shared and what cannot be shared? This item is part of the Study Room Guide On shit, piss, blood, sweat and tears by Lois Keidan (P2195)
