Claire Cunningham: tributary

September 15

As a part of the exhibition Automatisme Ambulatoire: Hysteria, Imitation, Performance, Scottish choreographer and dancer Claire Cunningham will be performing a new work tributary.

Friday, 13 September 2019 | 2:30 pm
Saturday, 14 September 2019 | 2:30 pm
Sunday, 15 September 2019 | 2:30 pm
Owens Art Gallery, Mount Allison University

tributary explores ideas of impersonation and tribute and links them to the ways disabled individuals may have been conditioned, through medical interventions from childhood, to strive for some mythical or iconic body. Looking through and into the world of the professional tribute artist, tributary examines notions of spectacle and control, as well as the provocation of disturbing bodies and the re-appropriation of crip movement. This work encompasses a live, three-day performance-installation by Claire Cunningham and performer Vicky Malin and its documentary residue (video, costumes, props), which will remain—as a tribute—within the gallery for the remainder of the exhibition.

These performances are a part of Automatisme Ambulatoire: Hysteria, Imitation, Performance curated by Amanda Cachia, on view at the Owens Art Gallery 6 September to 6 November.

Everyone welcome. ASL interpretation will be available.
