Between the world wars, a beautiful, artistic woman named Bobsy Goodspeed stood at the heart of Chicago’s social and cultural scenes.

Dr. Nora A. Taylor: “Performance Art under Attack in Southeast Asia”

June 15, 5:30pm

Over the past two decades, along with the rise of performance art in Southeast Asia, artists in Myanmar, Vietnam and Singapore have been the subject of censorship by their governments, with police raids on performance events and arrests for performing in public. This talk will discuss examples where artists have been attacked for exercising their rights as creative individuals and explain some of the controversies surrounding this art form under authoritative regimes.

Dr. Nora A. Taylor is the Alsdorf Professor of South and Southeast Asian Art History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
