Athi-Patra Ruga: New Performance
Tuesday, February 23, 7:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Regional Library, 227 22 Street
South-African artist Athi-Patra Ruga explores the borders between fashion, performance, and contemporary art through a practice that subverts the body in relation to structure, ideology, and politics. He has gained international attention through his performance series The Future White Women of Azania (2010-present) featuring fantastical characters-usually played by the artist-whose upper bodies are engulfed by colorful, balloons, while their lower bodies are revealed in stockings and heels. 'Azania' is a reference to both classical Greek and Roman accounts of southern Africa and modern activists' dreams of the pre- and post-apartheid black African utopia.
