As part of the exhibition Beginning with the Seventies: GLUT, the Belkin is pleased to present Groundhog Day Redux, an afternoon symposium addressing the perennial nature of key issues in feminism and both the frustrations and fresh insights that come with repetition. Dian Million and Kristina Lee Podesva, in conversation with Kimberly Phillips, will address the topic of Archive as Body to consider how affect, emotion and embodiment influence out relationship to archives.
Celebrating the excessive abundance of the archive, Beginning with the Seventies: GLUT is concerned with language, depictions of the woman reader as an artistic genre and the potential of reading as performed resistance.[more]
How is an archive formed? Memories of performance often exceed the containment of the document, whether photography, film, prop or testimony. As communities disperse and regroup over time, figures may slip away from the centre. Circling around the embodied archive, the exhibition Radial Change is drawn from the title of a dance work by Helen Goodwin. The elusive histories of Goodwin’s choreography and her influence on the interdisciplinary art scene of the 1970s are explored in new installation works by Evann Siebens and by Michael de Courcy.[more]
