Performance

 

Commissioned by David Roberts Art Foundation for An Evening of Performances, Frieze Week, O2 Forum Kentish Town (London) October 2018.

Performed by Angela Andrews, Wendy Houstoun, Monsur Mansoor, Bruno Roubicek, Esmond Sage and Tamara Tomic-Vajagic (with her guest Sam Pardes).

A series of toasts punctuating an evening of performances. Each invitee – artists, writers, performers, teachers, poets – raised a glass to something in need of celebration: laziness, ancestors, debt, violence, earthworms and turning up.

Here's to furthered our research into sincerity, luxury, the ethics and power relations of hosting.
