Afterall Issue 33, Summer 2013

"Rupture and Continuity in Feminist Re-performance," by Audrey Chan, Alexandra Grant, and Elana Mann

Afterall is pleased to present issue 33, Summer 2013, in which different approaches to the exhibition of performance are framed within a broader examination of the performative in contemporary art.

"....Finally, two accompanying essays consider diverging attempts at recuperating recent local art history. Artists Audrey Chan, Alexandra Grant and Elana Mann look back at their re-creation of 1960s and '70s feminist works for the festival Pacific Standard Time (2011–12) in Los Angeles, and discuss the value of re-performance as a means to create an embodied relationship with the past."
