Baring It: Self-Exposure in Feminist Performance

In conjunction with the exhibition A Feast of Astonishments:
Charlotte Moorman and the Avant-Garde, 1960s–1980s

In this roundtable conversation, artists Karen Finley and Narcissister will join Barbara Browning, associate professor of Performance Studies, NYU, to discuss continuing debates around self-exposure in women’s art. What power—and what risk—does one assume in baring oneself in artistic practice, or in inviting others to do so? How much has changed in the half century between Charlotte Moorman’s performance in Opera Sextronique and feminist art today?

Co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of Performance Studies (TSOA) and Grey Art Gallery.
