Following the fourth installation of his Incorruptible Flesh series, ‘Messianic Remains’, Ron Athey explores the performance lineage of his own post-AIDS body. Previous instalments were presented in collaboration with the late Lawrence Steger, who died of AIDS during the mid-late 1990s, and in 2007 with London-based artist Dominic Johnson. Between 1996 and 2007, performances took place in Glasgow, London, New York and Amsterdam. What does this sequence reveal about the persistence of a precarious human body? Where might it lead next?
Chaired by Dr Stephen Greer, University of Glasgow
The conversation will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
