People who have saved this event:



‘Uphold Withhold' is a new performance by British artist Lisa Selby, in which a number of female participants will enact a strictly controlled tea drinking ceremony, addressing the everyday rituals that perpetuate and legitimise gendered power structures in British society. Selby's performance will revolve around the pressures of social etiquette, specifically focusing on the virtues of self-restraint in the maintenance of manners.
