DESCRIPTION

Panel Discussion: Performing, Re-enacting and Reacting

Nicolás Dumit Estévez, Robert Longo, Tavia Nyong’o and Martha Wilson
Moderated by Alaina Claire Feldman, Independent Curators International (ICI)

Free and open to the public, no RSVP necessary

Performing, Re-enacting and Reacting will explore key complex issues surrounding the current tendency to re-perform historical works. How do artists (and sometimes institutions) re-enact a performance outside of its original artistic milieu? How do re-enacted performances differ from the original work (temporally, contextually) and how can we continue to present them in the now? Should there be a standardization for presenting performance today? Bringing together artists and art historians who have extensive engagements with performance in New York, this panel will consider the participants’ diverse approaches in answering these questions through several specific case studies.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibitions Performing Franklin Furnace at Pratt Manhattan Gallery and Martha Wilson: Downtown at NYU Fales Library (both on view through April 30) and with the performance series Performing Franklin Furnace atParticipant Inc. (which took place in February/March 2015).
