A lecture performance discussing the context and recent developments on her recent performance for Purrr!_Femme!-ance! at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Working with art, in particular performance, as a catalyst for discourse and action/ social change, Bailey, investigates the tensions between (constructed or otherwise) gendered, racial and sexual(ised)  identities and behaviors, particularly in relation to unspoken  narratives of intersectionality.
