February 21 2019 @ 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Visiting artist Robert Walton (Melbourne, Australia) will present an evening workshop and talk at the end of his Hyde Park Art Center residency responding to Goat Island’s 1991 performance Can’t Take Johnny to the Funeral. Robert will present material from his new work-in-progress performance exploring the themes that preoccupied Goat Island 30 years ago: bliss and terror, destruction of innocence and redemption. Robert’s new performance will premiere as part of goat island archive – we have discovered the performance by making it at Chicago Cultural Center in April 2019.
The performance will be followed by a discussion and complimentary drinks and snacks.
