To mark the opening of One Cannot Be Too Careful in Brighton, join us for a special event of lectures, talks and performances.
The evening will kick off with a lecture from Phillip Anthony (Head of Philosophy and Classics at BHASVIC). With reference to Iranian academic Azar Nafisi and the work of painter Balthus, he will demonstrate the problematic nature of artistic depictions of the female body and of female sexuality.
This will be followed by an exhibition talk and tour by one of the show’s curators.
Bloom by Amy Kingsmill- her work explores beauty and bleeding by unpacking the ideas around pain practices as masochistic or as ‘suffering’, queering pain rituals which were traditionally designed for men and igniting dialogues around female pain.
For the Sake of Your Safety- a performance delegated by the St Petersburg-based Rodina Art Group.
If There is a River by Ania PsH- a ritual piece in which the female performer religiously follows rules of self-censorship prescribed for women by different cultures at different historical times.
One Cannot Be Too Careful is an exhibition about censorship and self-censorship in the work of contemporary artists and includes pieces by over 30 female artists from countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the UK and many more. The exhibition runs from Friday 4th of May to Saturday 19th with live performances and talks at weekends.
