Happy Holidays. Happy 2018!

Happy Holidays from FD13!

Wishing you the very best this holiday season and a happy New Year.
Here is what we have planned for winter 2018.

Weed Killer_patrick_staff

London and Los Angeles–based artist Patrick Staff works with film, installation, dance, and performance to investigate dissent, labor, and the queer body. Throughout the month of February, Staff will develop Bathing (2018), their first performance choreographed for a live audience since 2013 which examines notions of contamination, cleanliness, and illness. In the week preceding this event, FD13 and the Walker Art Center will co-present a screening of Patrick Staff’s most recent film Weed Killer (2017), adapted from Catherine Lord’s 2004 memoir The Summer of Her Baldness.
