Cheap-Shots and Kayfabe

On February 23, join 2018 Kenan Graduate Arts Fellow Rachel Jessen for a conversation on the ethics of performative violence, the moral decision making of professional wrestling and the social value of mimicking that which entertains and enthralls us, with MIT Professor of Theater Arts Claire Conceison and the Kenan Institute for Ethics’ Mike and Ruth Mackowski Professor of Ethics Wayne Norman, at 5:30pm in the Ahmadieh Family Conference Room, West Duke Building Room 101.

Immediately following the conversation, at 6:30pm, please join Jessen in the Keohane-Kenan Gallery for the artist’s reception for her exhibit, Yarders: The Underground World of Backyard Wrestling, on-display through March 19, 2018.

Both events are open to the public and free of charge.
