(CO)PRODUCTION presents a selection of performances, photographic and video based works by the artist, and academic Myer Taub. The exhibition delves into such topics as the role of history, memory, the archive as repository of experience,the positioning of the perfomative in a non-theatre environment and the role of collaboration between artists in the production of work.
Myer Taub is a multi-disciplinary creative arts practitioner who constructs, performs, produces and writes in theatre visual arts, urban exploration, heritage, film and treasure hunts. Taub teaches in the Drama Department at the University of Pretoria. Here his field of interest is to engage with the complexities of practice-as-research; so as to develop creative and intellectual facilities through experiential learning; and promote a working process and a mode of performance conducive to the development of artist as scholar.
Taub will perform a series of interventions, lectures and spontaneous acts of creativity in the ROOM Gallery – Juta Street, Braamfontein. Exhibition opens April 10, 2013 at 18h00 and runs till May 4.
