Draw to Perform is an international symposium curated by Israeli-born artist Ram Samocha and focused on the connection between performance art and drawing. If you’re interested to see with your own eyes how such a connection works in practice, you’re in luck, as Draw to Perform is coming to Goldsmiths Design Festival!

The event will include video screenings, live drawing performances, talks and lectures by artists and art historians. The artists performing at Goldsmiths will be:

Rachel Grant– a visual artist living in Aberdeen; “her practice is process led, stemming from a fundamental curiosity in the act of making itself.”

Katrina Brown, interdisciplinary choreographer;

Poppy Jackson  , who”makes actionist work exploring the female body as an autonomous zone.”

Ram Samocha and Roberto Feo of El Ultimo Grito will introduce the symposium and participate in a panel discussion with the artists after the performances.

Draw to Perform at Goldsmiths will take place on 5 September starting 10 am, in Room LG02 of the Professor Stuart Hall Building. To book your free place, email ram_samocha@yahoo.com.
