E.P.A. (Environmental Performance Actions)
Exit Art is pleased to announce the opening of E.P.A. (Environmental Performance Actions), the first project of S.E.A, a large-scale program dealing with current environmental concerns and the way artists respond to them. E.P.A is a group exhibition surveying recent performance work from around the world that addresses current environmental crises. The exhibition will consist of videos, photographs, texts, related ephemera and a film program documenting recent performances. For this opening project we have invited Amy Lipton, co-curator, and Patricia Watts, co-curator and founder, of ecoartspace, a leading international environmental arts organization, to collaborate with Exit Art on the organization and presentation of this material.
S.E.A is an exhibition program and archive of artworks that address social and environmental concerns. It will assemble artists, activists, scientists and scholars to address these issues through presentations of visual art, performances, panels and lecture series. S.E.A will occupy a permanent space in Exit Underground, a multimedia performance, film and exhibition venue underneath Exit Art’s main gallery space. The S.E.A. Archive will be a permanent archive of information, images and videos that will be a searchable database for scholars and researchers.
