Join artist Appau-Jnr Boakye Yiadom for a reading group as part of his current residency.
The artist and participants will read an extract from Peggy Phelan’s book Unmarked: The Politics of Performance, 1993. The book is a critique of visibility as a political act and the assumption that greater visibility leads to enhanced political power.
This reading group forms part of the artist’s ongoing research into the ways human history is intertwined with communication and support. This is explored in his current exhibition at Site Gallery, Sheffield.
