GTUDE

 

GTUDE

GTUDE was a site-specific durational performance piece where I investigated desire and secrecy in the work of the twentieth century legend Gertrude Stein at the oldest gay bookstore in Canada located in the gay village in Toronto. GTUDE was a 4-hr exploration of body-object actions, reading aloud to audience members from Stein’s book,  “The Autobiography of Alice B Toklas”, and painting with whiskey all while the bookshop was open!

GTUDE took place in Glad Day bookshop the oldest LGBTQIA2S+ bookstore in North America during the World Pride celebrations, 2014
