Age Of The Athenian

Age Of The Athenian

Details

To mark the closing of _Edward Allington: Things Unsaid_ [https://www.henry-moore.org/whats-on/2019/10/25/edward-allington-things-unsaid], AgeOfThe. invites you to join them in a world of athenian delights and live art experiences. LadyHD, China, Luca, Donna The Domme From Doncaster and Luna Morgana will take you on a journey through their queer interpretations of the work of Edward Allington, using drag as a lens to explore ideas of mass production, perfect forms and historical narratives.

Each performance will draw on ideas and theories Allington was exploring in his own works: _Fruits of Oblivion_, _Heraclitus DXLIXA, Architectural Fragment (Third Column) _and_ Victory Boxed_. For 'Age Of The Athenian', artists from AgeOfThe. flirt with the notions of classicism - a thing which has been used in the west as a status symbol throughout our history, a phenomenon that Allington himself took inspiration from - to further play with the validity of art, a thing which drag (or indeed any art about queerness or transness), is rarely ever seen as.

There will be a Q&A following the performances, with the artists talking about their work in relation to Allington’s as well as drag, queerness, transness and the art of camp.

5pm: Doors
5:30pm: Performances in the galleries
7pm: Panel Discussion in the seminar room
