Lecture Performance: Jasmina Cibic

Event, in English, Paul-Desmarais Theater, 23 October 2018, 6:30pm

DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art in collaboration with the CCA presents a lecture performance by Jasmina Cibic.

In this lecture performance, artist Jasmina Cibic will discuss her new exhibition, Everything That You Desire and Nothing That You Fear. In this exhibition, created expressly for DHC/ART’s gallery spaces and the Montreal context, Cibic studies the connection between the former Yugoslavia and its participation in world exhibitions, including Montreal’s Expo 67 as well as other major examples of state-sanctioned art and architectural projects from European modernity, to explore ‘soft power’ and statecraft.

The artist will discuss a series of projects, which present a synthesis of gesture, stagecraft and re-enactment. Realized in films and installations, these works consist of an ongoing performative practice, an ‘enacted’ exercise in the dissection of statecraft, drawing together primary archival sources, reconfigurations of political rhetoric and ideologically tainted architectural spaces. This willful overwriting creates shifting meanings and highlights historical uncertainties and untruths, especially in the gendering of the past. The talk will play a double game, at once decoding mechanisms of power while building new allegorical structures.
