Event description

Description

Join distinguised artist and writer Nola Farman at the Round Table for a public reading. Farman will begin her reading session with a provocation to women artists with at least 50 years of art practice to rise to the call of The Neo-Sisyphist Manifesto. An opportunity will be offered to women whose experimental and conceptual working life spans at least three generations, to consider challenges posed by postmodern contemporary art practice, to create new work in the face of a wall of relentless ignorance, stupidity, opposition, obscurity, ageism, sexism, impecuniosity and a tired, out-dated, failed contemporary gallery system.

Farman will introduce her extended writing project, The E(n)tymology of Words, which questions the absurdities of the world of contemporary art practice. She is the creator of an alternative art world directed by her fictional agent, Permangelo E. Regularis whose artists have been involved for some years in a subterranean art project, taking place beneath the city of Montrèal. The reading suggests an alternative point of view and a new strategy for self-representation.
