About The Event

Join us for an art performance and judo demonstration in connection with the exhibition Mariángeles Soto-Díaz: Everyday Grappling Operations, which engages judo as a framework for examining the role of affect and asymmetry in power relations. Directed by Soto-Díaz, performers and several renowned black belt judokas demonstrate the practice of Randori, a free-form, random exercise of combat with agreed-upon rules. Combatants may use any judo technique, including throwing, choking, and holding an opponent down, provided they do not hurt each other and operate within the framework of the martial art.
