An artist talk exploring the body as site for, and subject of, gendered performance. Kris Grey, will provide a historic and social context for several contemporary performance artists. The lecture will explore the question of where to seat artists who make work on the edge of aestheticism and activism. The relevance of iteration and re-performance will be investigated with challenging and diverse examples. There will be a strong emphasis on gender constructions, women, and queer artists.
Kris Grey received a BFA in Ceramics with a minor in Language and Literature form the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2003 and is currently pursuing an MFA at Ohio University.
