October 16: Roundtable Conversation: Fantastic, Ridiculous, Punk, and Passion: The Flight of Frank Moore’s Painterly Hand in Dance, Performance, and Film Before AIDS

In a riveting roundtable conversation, Frank Moore’s contemporaries and collaborators will explore fantasy, symbol, and artistic collaboration, along with the stirrings of political activism, in Moore’s dance and performance works. “Fantastic, Ridiculous, Punk, and Passion” features Moore’s performance partners Richard Elovich, a medical sociologist at Columbia University and former theater artist, member of ACT UP, Gran Fury, and GMHC; and Jim Self, senior lecturer in dance, Cornell University. The discussion is organized by New York University’s Department of Performance Studies, Tisch School of the Arts, and co-sponsored by the Grey Art Gallery in conjunction with its ongoing exhibit “Toxic Beauty: The Art of Frank Moore.”
