I’m am excited to announce that four pieces from the Heads series will be on display from April 4-24th, 2016 as part of “Leading Role”, an exhibition exploring the performative nature of gender and identity in dialogue with the works of Shakespeare.
“Leading Role is part of Shakespeare 400, a four-month project that marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and the beginning of his afterlife. This exhibition will engage with this most translated and performed playwright in the world by inviting artists to think through, against, and with his many explorations of the performance of gender, gender relations, and identity.”
The connections between performance and gender will be underscored by the location of this exhibition: The Department of Theatre’s Academic Hall at the University of Ottawa.
Vernissage: April 7th at 5:00 pm, Academic Hall, 135 Séraphin-Marion, Ottawa, ON
