Live Performance: The Hidden Pin-Up: Black Gold Arts and Gemma Parker
The University of Manchester, Oxford Rd, space tbc.
Black Gold Arts (BGA) alumni House of Ghetto have teamed up with artist Gemma Parker to look at the fetishization of the black female body by investigating the hidden history of the black pin up girl and the legacy of racial stereotypes still found in modern day life. Taking inspiration from the traditional burlesque fan dance with a House of Ghetto twist, this site specific dance and spoken word vignette is political with some added phunk.The performance is supported by workshops run by Gemma Parker tying in with the Whitworth’s Bodies of Colour wallpaper exhibition offering the chance to create political yet decorative wallpaper designs. Presented by the Whitworth, Black Gold Arts, House of Ghetto and Gemma Parker.
