Artists Space

Public Bodies, Private Parts

As part of its contribution to Whitney Biennial 2012, Artists Space presents the second of three weekend symposia that address themes in response to the Biennial. Taking as its starting point instances in which Biennial artists have revisited and re-presented transgressive biographies – in particular the inclusion of the work of Forrest Bess overseen by Robert Gober, and the research into the notebooks of Tatsumi Hijikata within Richard Hawkin’s work – this weekend of talks and screenings is the first of two events that will consider the overlap between artistic production, the representation of desire, and notions of perversion.
