An Echo Button
Known for their technical experimentation with popular visual culture, sound, and sculpture, the artists will present a project for Times Square that responds to the history and the spectacle of the site. This site-specific work consists of a set of video pieces on Toshiba Vision in Times Square as well as a conceptual installation that functions as an “echo chamber” for the signboards outside. Curated by Silvia Sgualdini. Co-presented by Zabludowicz Collection. Supported by Lisson Gallery, Toshiba, and Times Square Alliance.
Performa 11, the fourth edition of the internationally acclaimed biennial of new visual art performance presented by Performa, will be held in New York City from November 1–21, 2011. The three-week biennial will showcase new work by more than 100 of the most exciting artists working today, in an innovative program breaking down the boundaries between visual art, music, dance, poetry, fashion, architecture, graphic design, and the culinary arts. Presented in collaboration with a consortium of more than 50 arts institutions and over 50 curators, as well as a network of public spaces and private venues across the city, Performa 11 will ignite New York City with energy and ideas, acting as a vital “think tank” linking minds across the five boroughs and bringing audiences together for brilliant new performances in all disciplines.
Founded by RoseLee Goldberg in 2004, Performa is the leading organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of twentieth-century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century. Performa launched New York’s first performance biennial, Performa 05, in 2005, followed by Performa 07 (2007), and Performa 09 (2009).
