Scholar-in-Residence: Conversation with Anicka Austin

June 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join Art on the Atlanta BeltLine for a conversation with its 2021-2022 Scholar-in-Residence, Anicka Austin, who will introduce her research (described below) and invite conversation with attendees about performance art and dance in Atlanta’s public spaces.

gaze, time-travel, and the unknown: contemporary site-specific performance in Atlanta’s public spaces is research resulting from letter-writing, observation, and interviews about how we use embodiment to make sense of our public spaces and collective histories. Through archival studies and sensemaking methodology developed from the library and information science field, the work aims to give language to the unseen exchanges that happen between Southern landscapes, artists, and spectators. Exchanges that stay with us and influence our ways of knowing and being. The research is underscored by a hope that imaginative reconstructions of history, place, and autobiography through performance have the power to initiate radical social transformation.
