The Work of Sex in the Age of Digital Reproduction: Gerard & Kelly’s Kisses

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Goldwin Smith Hall, Lewis Auditorium
232 East Ave, Central Campus

Elizabeth Freeman’s talk focuses on a set of performance pieces by Tino Sehgal (Kiss, 2002) and the performance duo Gerard & Kelly: You Call This Progress? (2010); Reusable Parts/Endless Love  (2011), and Kiss Solo  (2012).  The talk moves from Sehgal’s live performance in a museum space, to Gerard & Kelly’s audio-recording a reconstructed version of Sehgal’s score, their company’s live performance of that score, and their eventual video installation of that performance. 

Performance artists Gerard and Kelly will join Professor Freeman onstage for the Q&A portion of the event.
We encourage students, faculty, staff and members of the community to join us. Admission is free.
