In October, Edinburgh College of Art will be holding a two day symposium aptly titled “Ladies and Gentlemen: Miss Grace Jones.”

Following the success of previous symposiums at the college, keynotes include a speech from UCLA theorist Uri McMillan titled “Being Otherwise, Being Grace Jones: Performing on the Outer Limits.” 

An introspective on the life and art of the legendary Grace Jones will be featured including collaborations with Andy Warhol, John Paul Goude and Keith Haring. Lectures include “Queen of the Nightclub,” “I’ll Never Write My Memoirs: Pop, Art and Pop Art,” and “From A Distance She Looked Like Muhammad Ali in Drag.”

Registration opens the first week of August at gracejonessymposium.tumblr.com
