Performing (Place Placing) Identity
April 24th

Crenshaw House
919 W. Franklin Street

The VCU Gender, Sexuality, and Women Studies Department is hosting our spring show, Performing (Place Placing) Identity. Our event will explore how and why certain ‘identities’ and ‘places’ are produced. It will attempt to address the appropriation of cultural practices by fine art institutions and examine how classism, racism, and sexism are still enacted.

Ultimately, by exploring alternative and participatory forms of creative expression, this series will complicate the narrative of place and identity and show how society is formed by different categories of identity.

Opening Night is Thursday, April 24th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Panel Discussion on identity and performance will be held at 6 p.m.
Poetry Reading at 7 p.m.
Film Screenings will take place at 8 p.m.

The event will be held at the Crenshaw House
919 W. Franklin Street, Richmond, VA

This event is free and open to the public.
Refreshments will be provided.
