Exhibition Preview & Performance | The Pleasure of Expense
17:30 on 17 October 2019
Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design
Join us for the exhibition preview and performance of Jasmina Cibic’s The Pleasure of Expense.
Replete with the appropriate pomp and circumstance, the curtains will be raised on The Pleasure of Expense with an all-female operatic ensemble. Bringing the gifting of culture centre stage, the ensemble will sing excerpts of political speeches made during key moments of social crisis in the 20th century. Sung whilst reclining on hammocks embroidered with political slogans and suspended from three metal sculptures, the new performance brings state power, modernist architecture and the disciplined body into a single spectacle.
The event is free and unticketed.
Performance starts at 5.30pm.
