An-artist, Unlearning. 1: Lecture as performance. 14 May 7pm. Robert Morris/Babette Mangolte, Fay Nicolson, Aaron Williamson
An-artist, Unlearning is a series of film screenings, performances and discussions animating aspects of pedagogical address in the shadow of the gallery, academy and art school. The programme encompasses enactments and presentations engaging forms, sites and practices connected to ‘undoing,’ ‘unlearning’ and ‘not-knowing,’ coinciding with the frame of experimental educational modes since the 1960s. ‘An-artist’ suggests a radical and continual repositioning of the artist vis-à-vis prevailing discourses: an on-going and urgent resistance to received representational structures. Allied to this is the process of actualization inherent in ‘unlearning’ conventional codes and operations, and creating alternative discursive environments.
The first installment of An-artist, Unlearning plays on the performative character of the lecture as a form. With a screening of a film by Babette Mangolte/Robert Morris and performances by artists Fay Nicolson and Aaron Williamson.
Programmed by Louise Garrett.
