Documenting Performance Art
September 17 at6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30 – $40
As performance-based artists and queer women, Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan are passionate about documentation. The fine art canon neglects so many voices and practices; it is essential that we record our own. However, translating a live artwork into digital media can be fraught. What is the difference between documentation and a stand-alone work? What is appropriate to capture? How can the essence of something live be recorded? And what, in their experience, doesn’t work? A variety of examples from Dempsey and Millan and other artists will be shown. Please bring all questions.
Dates: Tuesday, September 17th (6pm – 8pm)
Fees: $30 member / $40 non-member
Limit: 15 Participants

They were catapulted into the international spotlight in 1990 with the film We’re Talking Vulva, an iteration of a previous performance piece. They are perhaps even better known for Lesbian National Parks and Services, another live piece that lives on screen.
