In this presentation Jason E. Bowman will offer two case studies of his curatorial endeavours, both being survey exhibitions incorporating live works: Yvonne Rainer: Dance and Film (Tramway, 2010) and the current, In Case There’s a Reason: The Theatre of Mistakes (Raven Row, 2017). Jason has worked on this latter project for over 10 years, firstly cataloguing the divergent records and ephemera of the UK performance company The Theatre of Mistakes (1974-81) including manifestos, diagrams, instructions, logbooks, photographic documentation, correspondence etc. He will address how hypertemporal frameworks have operated in the organisation and manifestation of these projects and in particular consider how In Case There’s a Reason: The Theatre of Mistakes seeks to develop ways in which to make ‘exhibitable’ the logics of this artists’ group in terms of their working processes and their commitment to additive and subtractive forms of replication. He will also consider the problematics and discontents of revitalising performances.
