This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.
Too Much reflects upon performativity labelled as excessive or disruptive, questioning the representation of the body in a patriarchal society. Curated by Giulia Gregnanin and produced by Sarah L. Smith, the project features contributions from artists based in London, Glasgow, Amsterdam: Adam Christensen, SAGG Napoli, Jeanne Tullen, and Nora Turato.
The exhibition is presented as a live platform that gathers together four ways of conceiving a stage, stressing a separation between gender performativity and the regularisation of the theatre’s proscenium. Over the course of Glasgow International, four evening events showcase multiple approaches to performative practices of disobedience that exceed norms and expectations and open new possibilities for subjectivity.
