K8 HARDY AND RAÚL DE NIEVES AT PARTICIPANT

“In K8 Hardy’s performances, the body makes itself a transmitter in order to update and queer the world with its broadcasts….If contemporary art is first and foremost a system for producing subjects in the form of contemporary artists…it’s probably time for artists to rethink their own role in this system’s reproduction….Instead of simply feeding the network in new and creative ways, artists would get more involved in de-creation, and engage subjectivization as an ever-recurring opportunity for unworking.” — John Kelsey*
K8 Hardy, Raúl de Nieves, and Participant present BEAUTIFUL RADIATING ENERGY, with de Nieves in a piece Hardy first performed at Reena Spaulings in 2004.
BEAUTIFUL RADIATING ENERGY , Sunday, May 21. Doors open at 7 pm.
