Ikon SPEAKS - Understanding transformance art: faith, fetish and religion without religion ... Sunday night at 8pm

After a soft launch last month, on Sunday night Ikon is getting down to the serious business of thinking outside the box in The Black Box tucked into Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter.

This year, Ikon’s taking a three-pronged approach to its monthly gatherings, cycling around between

  • Ikon EVOLVES - offering up a brand new experiment in transformance art;

  • Ikon SPEAKS - Pete Rollins or a guest will be serve up some food for thought, followed by music and discussion;

  • Ikon RECALLS - returning to a previous “ classic” gathering, re-imagining it and learning something new from it - and an opportunity for folk who missed the start of the party back in 2001.

Sunday 19th at 8pm is an Ikon SPEAKS, with Pete planning to talk around "Understanding transformance art: faith, fetish and religion without religion". The good news is that you don’t have to be a heretic or a hippy to attend ... though an open mind and a willingness to engage in debate never hurts.
