Adrian Piper, Shiva Dances with the Art Institute of Chicago, 2004. Participatory performance-lecture video documentation. Video still #30002. Collection Adrian Piper Research Archive Foundation. © APRA Foundation Berlin.

As part of her current residency at Gasworks, Ramaya Tegegne presents a screening of Shiva Dances with the Art Institute of Chicago (2004) by American conceptual artist and philosopher Adrian Piper.

Documenting a 2003 lecture by Piper, which transforms into a spontaneous group performance, the film situates her seminal 1983 work Funk Lessons in the tradition of mainstream films that represent the teaching of popular dance as a means of self-transcendence and cross-cultural contact, and within the broader philosophical context of Piper’s The Color Wheel Series, which this video completes.

Please register for a place if you would like to attend. Please note that this event begins promptly at 7pm, latecomers tickets may be reallocated.
