Q.E.D. II: The Presence of Absence
Q.E.D. II is a series of performances curated around issues of affinity, influence, and provocation.
This event will be an evening of performances and a town-hall style discussion moderated by Anna Joy Springer and featuring Matias Viegener, Tisa Bryant, and Catherine Lord.
In his curatorial statement, Matias Viegener writes:
“As I examine the community of artists and writers with whom I am in dialogue, many of them work in a discourse of perforation, annotation, lacunae, and the presence of absence. In a recent blog, Dodie Bellamy commented on the relation between queerness, theorization and fragments: ‘Queer celebrates poverty of theory. Make own stories out of gaps and silence.’ How indeed is the queer subject, the subject of the other, to be made present? What are the axiomatics of delivery?
Are there other kinds of presence that are structured by forms of absence?”
