 A Rethinking of Performance

我不在美学的进程里-再谈行为

Curator: Su Wei

As a research project, I'm Not Involved In Aesthetic Progress: A Rethinking of Performance will attempt to approach a dual notion of presence and absence of aesthetics within the excessive discourses revolving around performance art. This is at the same time both about performance and its medium, but conversely it is also a discussion that attempts to go beyond the confines of its present discourse. It will place a study of its aesthetics and the medium from the perspective of a history of 'microcosm' and 'inactivity'. By drawing parallels to the creative practices of artists, the research will avoid being entangled in different roles creative practices have played in existing aesthetic discourses. This research recognizes the anxieties these artists face and the different attempts to negotiate their own cultural background, knowledge, identity, and other conventional forms. The aim of I'm Not Involved In Aesthetic Progress is to raise questions about the accuracy of critical discourse and the distance to art, in addition to raising questions considering its own criticality.
