Elements of Vogue. A Case Study in Radical Performance

CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo

17 Nov 201706 May 2018

“Elements of Vogue. A Case Study in Radical Performance” explores ways in which minorities use their bodies to produce dissenting forms of beauty, subjectivity and desire. These minoritarian poetics and politics are perceived as a threat to the normative world, yet at the same time coveted by mainstream culture.
The show is inscribed within the lines of research at the core of CA2M’s programme, which explores the intersections between contemporary art, music, visual cultures and subcultural phenomena.
