Thursday 8 February 2018
Love, Pain & Intimacy in Live Art
@ Queen Mary University, London
Arts Two Lecture Theatre
18:30-20:30 (free entrance)

What drives artists to extreme performances, blood-shedding or endurance work? What traces are left on both the performer and the participant during one-to-one encounters? What kind of intimacy is created when sexualities are performed in public?

Drawing from the pains and pleasures of subversive parenting, sexual/asexual encounters, tattoo and skin-based practices and Black dance communities, artists and writers discuss the affective relations involved in live art practices.

Love, Pain & Intimacy in Live Art - posterPresentations by Ivan Lupi, Rachael Young, Emie // Eva-Marie Elg as E-ME 2.0, Nicola Hunter and keynote lecture by Dominic Johnson (Reader in Performance and Visual Culture, Queen Mary University of London). Moderated by Giulia Casalini and Diana Georgiou (co-directors at Arts Feminism Queer). #performingromance

The event will be followed by a drink reception.

This symposium is part of the live art club night and multi-disciplinary exhibition DEEP TRASH Romance, taking place on Saturday 10 February 2018 at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. The programme is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Deep Trash

During a time when public and private spaces are narrowing their ability to accommodate the concerns and lives of non-normative and non-binary subjects, events such as Deep Trash are crucial in bringing together a community of people interested in the themes of sexuality, gender, creativity and politics, with an intersectional and transnational approach.
