Exhibition view, Photography and the Performative Chau Chak Wing Museum, 2023.  

Saturday 3 June, 2–3pm

Photography and the Performative examines recent ideas and theories that frame performance as a phenomenon that is everywhere. Performative actions may include the manifestation of ideas, whether literal, oral, spoken, or written. Such forms can be visual, architectural, spatial, gestural and gendered. This exhibition looks at how these different modes may be ‘recorded’ via the medium of photography.
