Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art chronicles the persistence of black performance in the field of visual arts.  While black performance has been largely contextualized as an exten sion of theater\, black visual artists have integrated performance into the ir work for over five decades\, generating a repository of performance work that has gone largely unrecognized until now.  Radical Presence p rovides a critical framework to discuss the history of black performance tr aditions within the visual arts beginning with the “happenings” of the earl y 1960s\, throughout the 1980s\, and into the contemporary practices of a n ew generation of artists.

\n

Radical Presence will feature vi deo and photo documentation of performances\, performance installations and relics\, as well as ephemera related to the featured performance works.
