NEXT TO NOTHING: ART AS PERFORMANCE/SYMPOSIUM

26 SEPTEMBER 2015 – 27 SEPTEMBER 2015

 

Honi Ryan, Independent artist

A Necessary Nothing

Ryan invites us to participate in an experiment to ascertain how minimal performance art can be. In the absence of an artist, with the absence of prescribed content, how far can a provocation to think be the stuff of art, and why? Ryan works with a living practice located at the borders of art and life, where the decision to make something art is the only thing needed to define an action as such. In reflecting upon a recently culminated endurance performance Gestures of Intent: A Year of Nomadic Social Practice, Ryan offers profound simplicity as a sociopolitical awareness positioned toward peacemaking.

From thelockup:

NEXT TO NOTHING: ART AS PERFORMANCE – A MEETING OF ART AND PHILOSOPHY IN THE AGE OF POST-DEMATERIALISATION

A TWO-DAY FREE SYMPOSIUM

Join us for a two-day performance and symposium event in partnership with the School of Creative Arts, University of Newcastle.

Today, creative and performing artists routinely take on themes and issues rather than styles. They work as comfortably with art as material as they do with art as performative. It is not what or how it is represented but rather the ideas and concepts an artwork exemplifies that defines it.

This symposium will present a dynamic program of performance and talks by local, inter-state and international artists and academics and a keynote by artist in residence Professor Steve Dutton.

Curated by Associate Professor Jenny McMahon, Associate Professor Philosophy, University of Adelaide and Dr Sean Lowry, School of Creative Arts, University of Newcastle.
