Workshop "These are scores"

Date: 11 May 2018, 2pm to 5pm
Location: Chelsea Space

Join Irene Revell for a workshop that brings together collective reading, group discussion and performance to explore the score anthology publication Womens Work.

Womens Work [sic] is a collection of textual, instructional and propositional performance scores by twenty-five women, edited and self-published in New York by Fluxus artist Alison Knowles and sound artist Annea Lockwood over two printed issues (1975-8), bringing their work into relation with the feminist movement through the medium of the score. With its decisive feminist framing, the Womens Work collection presents a significant challenge to the male-dominated history of the avant-garde performance score and in turn a formal challenge to the feminist art movement of the 1970s that tended to focus on more visual media.
