English Kills Art Gallery is pleased to present the inaugural Maximum Perception Performance Festival, December 11-12, 2009 at English Kills Art Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
Over 2 nights, the Maximum Perception Performance Festival will be a showcase for over 20 national and international performance artists, focusing on presenting a dynamic range of contemporary performance practice from the best emerging artists in performance.
Curators Peter Dobill and Phoenix Lights seek to present a counterpoint to the fiscally bloated, dilettante-based spectacle that has consumed the image of performance art in New York City. The Maximum Perception Performance Festival will feature newly commissioned performance works in addition to site-specific actions and ongoing projects from all participating artists.
Established as a critically acclaimed exhibition in 2008 to survey the Brooklyn performance art scene, the Maximum Perception Performance Festival has evolved to become a yearly showcase for the forefront of performance art practice in New York City and beyond.
Participating artists include: Rob Andrews, Leah Aron + Tymon Mattoszko, Matthew Blair, Ryan Brown, Holly Faurot + Sarah H. Paulson, Danielle Freakley/The Quote Generator, Philip Fryer, Nate Hill, Erik Hokanson, Andrew Hurst, Naoki Iwakawa, Amery Kessler, Marni Kotak, Jodie Lyn Kee Chow + Zachary Fabri, Jill McDermid, Sandrine Schaefer, Rosabelle Selavy, Mark Stafford, Matt White, and Jen Zak.
