Curator's Claire Tancons and Krista Thompson at EN MAS' at CAC New Orleans
The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas
Friday, April 29, 2015
The event is FREE and open to the public
On Friday, April 29, the curators of EN MAS’: Carnival, Junkanoo and Performance Art of the Caribbean, Claire Tancons and Krista Thompson, will lead a discussion on the exhibition. The two will discuss the linking of performance art and street festivals with contemporary art. They will share details about the process that connected artists across many borders. Guests will be encouraged to think critically about the origins of particular elements of street festivals like carnival and Junkanoo that we often overlook, including the mask, the drum and the parade. The talk begins at 6PM and all members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend.
