DESCRIPTION

Complicated cultural histories are inscribed in the postures and the poses that we strike, and few gestures speak as loudly about the ways gender, sexuality and power culturally intersect than the angle of the hip. This in-gallery conversation is a prelude to a night of critical strutting, an invitation to seriously contemplate the challenge that a jutted hip makes to more straight and narrow forms of embodiment. Together, we’ll consider the kind of imperfect balance that’s created when our weights and perspectives shift from one leg to another, when we work to sway.


Gorgeous Ideas are a series of informal conversations that explore ideas and themes in the exhibition Gorgeous.
