OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Some thirty years after her sudden death, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's work remains a force in the fields of visual arts, avant-garde poetry, and feminist theory. From her early scholarship on French deconstruction to her video and performance art to her landmark book Dictee, Cha carved a singular space within the history of art, a one-woman avant-garde. Her work, described, in turns, as illegible, de-colonizing, avant-garde, stuttering, provokes us into new understandings of history, language, and the body.
Please note that this is an offsite event, held at Performance Space New York.
