Departing from a selection of artworks included in Grace Before Jones: Camera, Disco, Studio, this dialogue between co-curator, Cédric Fauq and performance studies scholar, Uri McMillan reflects on the moving power of stillness and fashion as dynamic sculpture, while tracing the Grace Jones’ entanglement with gender binaries, politics and androgyny through performance. In a live exercise at the crossover between visual cultures and performance studies, this talk draws unlikely connections from the performances and photographs of Jones, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Adrian Piper.
