Shaun Leonardo | Visiting Artist Lecture
In Conversation with Christina Yang

Wed. Oct 3, 5pm

Granoff Center, Martinos Auditorium
154 Angell Street, Providence

Shaun Leonardo’s performance practice is participatory in nature and invested in a process of embodiment, promoting the political potential of attention and discomfort as a means to disrupt meaning and shift perspective. His recent commission for the Guggenheim Museum, Primitive Games, exemplifies this practice. This body of work is the pillar for his conversation with Christina Yang, Director of Public Programs at the Guggenheim Museum. Together, Shaun and Christina will navigate a discussion around the motivations and process of actualizing a performance as dynamic and challenging as Primitive Games and what it means for artists and museums to sustain a social practice. Presented by the Department of Visual Art and the Brown Arts Initiative.

Primitive Games Workshop with Shaun Leonardo
Wed. Oct 3, 2-4pm
List Art Building, room 120
The goal of this project is to ask the question: Are we, through non-verbal action, able to model and momentarily restore purpose to the act of debate, by seeing difference not as a hindering factor but as a necessary component to reaching consensus and enacting change? This project is an attempt to investigate the ways in which platforms of discussion may be rethought and possibly reinvented. Therefore, ideas of opposition/ confrontation/competition will be held at the center of all exercises as a way to formulate body language around non-verbal debate. Registration required here. Limited spots.

Priscilla Carrion | Artist Talk and Workshop
