Críticas:

"I welcome Smith's willingness to grapple with the ambivalent feelings these artworks provoke." Helena Rickitt, Goldsmiths, University of London writing for the Times Higher Education "In this provocative work, Cherise Smith provides both an important primer on performance, and an exploration of the U.S. Obsession with race and its formations. Through impressive studies of four artists, Adrian Piper, Eleanor Antin, Anna Deavere Smith and Nikki S. Lee, Smith examines the remarkable reach of the embodied idea and the use of strategies from conceptual art to traditional theatre, and tactics from cross-dressing to minstrelsy. Smith's voice is a welcome addition to writing on contemporary art, and will redefine how we understand performance's ability to both display and address differentials of power." Kellie Jones, Columbia University "Cherise Smith writes eloquently against the notion of post-identity politics, using her understanding of the persistent 'politics of identity' to trace the boundary-crossing practices of these four important artists. Smith discusses spectators' identification strategies, but keeps an astute critical eye on the material corporeal circumstances of living within identity at this particular historical moment. From minstrelsy to passing, drag to embodiment, Smith parses theoretical tropes to study performance as a laboratory for experiments with human identity. Using personal memory and theory alongside political insights, the book treads a useful range of examples, from popular culture, to film, to art historical performance, to performance in everyday life. Enacting Others is a readable, well-argued, illuminating book that makes a vital contribution to gender and critical race studies." Jill Dolan, Princeton University

Reseña del editor:

The artists Adrian Piper, Eleanor Antin, Anna Deavere Smith, and Nikki S. Lee have all crossed racial, ethnic, gender, and class boundaries in works that they have conceived and performed. Cherise Smith analyzes their complex engagements with issues of identity through close readings of a significant performance, or series of performances, by each artist. She examines Piper's public embodiment of the Mythic Being, a working-class black man, during the early 1970s; Antin's full-time existence as the fictitious black ballerina Eleanora Antinova for several weeks in 1981; Deavere Smith's shifting among more than twenty characters of different ages and racial, ethnic, gender, and class backgrounds in her show Twilight: Los Angeles. She also considers Lee's performances of membership in cultural groupsoincluding swing dancers, hip-hop devotees, skateboarders, drag queens, and yuppiesoin her Project series (1997-2001). Smith historicizes the politics of identity by exploring each performance in relation to the discourses prevalent in the United States at the time of its development. She is attentive to how the artists manipulated clothing, mannerisms, voice, and other signs to negotiate their assumed identities. Smith argues that by drawing on conventions such as passing, blackface, minstrelsy, cross-dressing, and drag, they highlighted the constructedness and fluidity of identity and identifications. Enacting Others provides a provocative account of how race informs contemporary art and feminist performance practices.
