Announcing US Tour

Performance as Photography | Photography as Performance

We are delighted to announce that Manuel Vason will be presenting the event series ‘Double Dialogues’ in five locations across the US: Grace Exhibition Space  (New York), Mobius  (Boston), Defibrillator Gallery  (Chicago), Human Resources Los Angeles (Los Angeles) and SF Camerawork  (San Francisco).
Drawing on Manuel Vason’s latest collaborative project
Double Exposures, 'Double Dialogues' will bridge ideas of performance and photography in conversation with some of the most visually arresting artists practicing performance in the US. Q&A sessions will follow each event and a limited number of signed copies of Double Exposures will be available.
Participating artists include: 
Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Heather Cassils, Jamie McMurry, Keijaun Thomas, Linda Montano, Marilyn Arsem, Mat Fraser, Zackery Drucker.

Double Exposures (co-published by
Live Art Development Agency and Intellect Books) is a new collaboration and publication between Vason and forty of the most visually provocative UK-based artists working in international contemporary live performance.
“Vason’s pieces are arguably both photograph and performance, asking us to engage a photograph not only as a record of a performance, but as the performance itself
(Rebecca Schneider, Encounters, Arnolfini, Bristol, 2007)
