Performing: Fishing with Angela
May 22 from 2-2:30
The Queens Museum
Artist and teacher Angela Dufresne took Kerry Downey on a fishing trip upstate in Spring 2015. Downey’s subsequent performance and video explores their relationship through fishing and painting practices. They engage with the layered histories of mimicry through queer, feminist, pedagogical, painterly, and performative practices. Using an overhead projector, Downey attempts to copy Dufresne’s gestures, words, and ideas. The performance brings the politics and poetics of inter-generational exchange into close proximity.
