Nando Messias: Artist Residency
We are delighted to share news of two free events – a workshop and a performance – that may appeal to those with an interest in gender, queerness, and the archiving of exquisite trans ephemera. We will be welcoming Nando Messias to Goldsmiths to undertake an artist residency with the Staging Decadence project in the first week of July. They will be bringing with them their archive of costume spanning the breadth of their career as a performance maker as it makes its way to The Museum of Transology at Bishopsgate, London. Toward the end of the residency Nando will be sharing a workshop at 2pm on 6 July, which will focus on decadent costume and precarity, and a performance of their new work TransMission: Sissy TV at 6pm on 7 July. Both events will take place in the George Wood Theatre at Goldsmiths. Tickets are free, but booking is essential.
