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

Instructors: Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan

About the Instructors

Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan are two of Canada’s best-known performance artists. 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. The duo has toured North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan, and their film and video works are exhibited internationally. shawnadempseyandlorrimillan.net
