There’s a new Event this weekend in Miami’s Wynwood Art District that has just come up on our radar and we think we want to go check it out. It’s part of PerforMIA 2020 an evening of Performance, noise, videos and experimental sound.
They all explore the application of humour and comedy tactics by contemporary queer male artists and invites visitors to reflect upon how queer male culture has employed artistic embraces of humour and comedy as strategies to challenge, transgress, subvert and rebel. By doing so, they not only counter art history’s rancor towards and is resistant to particular kinds of humour that are only now being embraced by the most recent methodologies, these artists offer compelling ways of using humour as an artistic, disruptive, cathartic and transgressive act that provokes awareness of key critical issues relating to queer male representation historically and today.
The program will consist of the following shorts:
