To Move Into Position: A Performative Lecture with US English at INCA, April 12

Artistic collaboration US English will be holding a performative lecture at INCA this Tuesday, April 12. US English, the brainchild of Brea and James McAnally, explores the convergence of art, politics and identity through “a diverse collection of text, sound, objects and interventions, often initiating large-scale projects in public space.” From the press release: What is criticism in crisis? What is it after crisis, post-protest? What is it to be contemporary when contemporaneity is crisis? On April 12th, US English will present a performative lecture exploring the boundaries and potentials of criticism as it intersects with social action. The lecture will be accompanied by artist-created fragrances, sound, objects and readings that together considers criticism’s means and modes of protest – both its possibility for tactical acts as well as the poetics of transformation and mourning. Following the lecture will be an informal, open discussion about independent arts publishing led by James McAnally, executive editor and co-founder of Temporary Art Review. US English Presents: To Move Into Position  When: Tuesday April 12, 7:30-9pm Where: INCA (2 W Roy St)
