ARTSPEAK RADIO presents, Jessica Borusky, Mark Stevenson, Martin English with KCYA, & Jameson Bayles

In the first half of the program, artist Jessica Borusky joins us to talk about the three-day performance art symposium, Yeah, No, I Mean It: Time, Situation, Dexterity, housed at Charlotte Street’s La Esquina Gallery on the evenings of April 16th, 17th, and 18th from 7-9pm. Each night, local performance artists will generate live work within the gallery, alongside nationally recognized visiting performance artists. These performances will range in aesthetics, concepts, and duration: from the highly visual and loud, to the quiet and contemplative. This symposium is designed to highlight and expand the local and national conversation about contemporary performance art practice through three days of making and discussing the local and national ecology of emerging performance art. adn
