08-03-2018 12:00:00 08-04-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Kathy Acker: Who Wants to Be Human All the Time | 12:00 PM In 1974, 26-year-old Kathy Acker met the conceptual artist Alan Sondheim, and suggested a collaboration that would allow them to get to the bottom of their sexual attraction by exchanging “as much information about ourselves as possible.” The result is Blue Tape, an hour-long, highly charged and confrontational truth-and-sex tape. It is remarkable for its braveness, as well as the insight it gives into a young Acker, about to find her voice on sexuality, intimacy, family, and power relations–all themes that consistently recur throughout her oeuvre. For this group exhibition, Blue Tape will be shown next to works by contemporary artists in dialog with Acker. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=283772 Performance Space New York Performance Space New York
