Beneath the Mask:
Artists, Archives and A/Gender — A day of events, exhibitions and spectacle.
March 16th 2017, 10am-4pm
Sidney Cooper Gallery, Canterbury
Beneath the Mask: Artists, Archives and A/Gender will provide an exciting day of events, exhibitions and spectacle prompted by Claude Cahun‘s exploration of identities and masking.
Throughout the day and with an eclectic and playful mix of presentation and performance, Artists, Archives and A/Gender will explore concepts of identity and masquerade.
Curatorial walk/talks; authors and artists in conversations; poetry and performance will shape the day, providing a plurality of perspectives and an opportunity to enter into dynamic dialogue and discussion.
This one-day event is in partnership with UAL’s Photography and the Archive Research Centre‘s ‘Moose on the Loose’ Festival. Contributions from a number of CCCU’s centres for research will include: the Centre for Research on Communities and Cultures; the Intersectional Centre for Inclusion and Social Justice (INCISE); the Centre for Practice-Based Research in the Arts and the South East Archive of Seaside (SEAS) Photography.
Note that this event will include adult content and themes.
