The multidisciplinary performance practice of London-based artist Martin O’Brien uses physical endurance, pain, disgust, and sexuality to challenge common representations of illness. Inspired by an unrealized concept of poet and performance artist Bob Flanagan, Dust to Dust is an intergenerational collaborative performance between O’Brien and Flanagan’s partner and performance artist Sheree Rose.
This performance will be followed by a conversation between O’Brien, Rose, and Amelia Jones, Robert A. Day Professor of Art and Design and Vice Dean of Critical Studies at the USC Roski School of Art and Design.
