LECTURE ON SLAVE PORTRAITURE
Williamstown, 5:30 p.m.
Agnes Lugo-Ortiz, a Clark/Oakley Humanities Fellow at the Clark Art Institute, presents the free lecture “Slave Portraiture at the Thresholds of Emancipation (A Caribbean Meditation)” in the Michael Conforti Pavilion. The talk addresses the visualization of enslaved subjects in portraiture during the period of emancipation in the Caribbean. Lugo-Ortiz underscores the conflictive political forces, affective dynamics, and aesthetic principles at work in the composition of these images—and the limits placed on the visual configuration of black people as subjects of freedom.

A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF PERFORMANCE ART
Williamstown, 7:30 p.m.
What’s the difference between theatre and performance art? When do objects “act” better than actors? Why is Kendall Jenner imitating Yoko Ono? Join us for a new collaboration between the Theatre Department and Williams College Museum of Art that aims to investigate the history (and histrionics) of performance art. Accompanied by the gallery exhibition Active Ingredients: Prompts, Props, Performance—featuring art objects that “perform”—A People’s History of Performance Artconjures a series of tableaux-vivants (living pictures) based on iconic photographs of archival performance art works by artists such as Yves Klein, Carolee Schneemann, Chris Burden, Yoko Ono, Adrian Piper, Tehching Hsieh, and Marina Abramovic. Reversing the dichotomy of performance as “live” and objects as “dead,” A People’s History of Performance Artflips the script to reveal how art can sometimes seem more alive than people. 62 Center
