Owen G. Parry – FAN RIOT | Video by Ana Godinho de Matos
“All the artists are copying their fans, darling.”
Fan Riot explores the phenomenon of fandom at a time when distinctions between the professional and amateur, the artist and fan are diminishing. It contemplates the ways artist and fans are negotiating these cultural shifts; making way for new expressive languages, and unusual and imaginative forms of creativity and collectivity.
Fan Riot is a project by Owen G. Parry with contributing artists and fans. It includes original research, public events and performances, and the development of a new stage show for theatre and concert venues.
