RoseLee Goldberg: Performance Now on the 2nd floor
Wednesday February 20: 7:30PM – 8:30PM
This event is free to attend. Copies of Performance Now will be available for purchase at the event. The event will take place in the Art Department on the 2nd floor of our main store at 828 Broadway.
Performance Now offers an unprecedented illustrated survey of this temporal medium which is notoriously hard to document, written by respected curator, art historian, and critic RoseLee Goldberg. Six chapters cover different themes of performance art, such as beauty, global citizenship, and activism, as well as its intersection with other media including film and technology, dance, theater and architecture, interspersed with illustrated profiles of some of the world’s best-known performance artists, including Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, and Laurie Simmons. Extended captions assess the importance of specific works in context.
Join us in the 2nd Floor Art Department as RoseLee Goldberg shares her latest book! RoseLee will be joined in conversation by Evan Moffitt, Associate Editor of Frieze Magazine.
