Enjoy a break from exams with Janice Perry 19.07. - 6pm - ÜR 1107.07.2016
JANICE PERRY: NOT JUST ANOTHER PRETTY FACE "One of the World’s Most Respected Performance Artists" - BBC Radio
Perry laughs us through her vibrant retrospective of social criticism and political satire-- from Marilyn Monroe through a few Gulf Wars, High Fashion, Erotica, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Mapplethorpe’s naked men and Censorship. In an evening that is part roller coaster ride, part demolition derby, Perry’s performance embodies US American cultural history from 1981 to the present, laughing all the way. Perry shows documentation video clips from past work to introduce live performance pieces. The work is provocative and remarkably relevant.
