Thinking Dance Archives

Friday, December 02, 5:00 p.m.

SAIC 280 S. Columbus Drive, 012

Join interdisciplinary dance and performance studies scholars Jaime Shearn Coan and Tara Aisha Willis and movement-based artist taisha paggett, as we engage questions of performance and the archive. We will consider the inherent possibilities and failures that can happen when we look back over an artist’s career, engage in critical conversation in the present, and look towards artistic futures. This evening will bring together those with an interest in performance and archives.

Optional introductory reading: Introduction to Tara and Jaime's recent publication Marking the Occasion (Wendy's Subway 2020).

Presented by the Department of Exhibitions, SAIC Galleries, Performance Department, and the John M. Flaxman Library Special Collections.
