PERFORMANCY FORUM is a clustering, condensing, and critical effort comprising interdisciplinary exhibitions (emphasis on performance art, social practices, and participatory/publicly engaged work), workshops, conferences, actions, events, and more.
PERFORMANCY FORUM began in 2009 as a project of the Panoply Performance Laboratory (PPL) while the collective was in residence at Surreal Estate. It has since become an open project, collaborating with spaces, sites, curatorial collectives, and many others to:
1.) Forge IN-PERSON relationships (including collaborations) between artists from different artistic mediums and micro-communities.
2.) Perform collective research, including drawing of parallels between current performance and social practices and attempts to locate them within historic, economic, socio-political, and aesthetic contexts.
3.) Provide a site (physical or cognitive) for complex and critical thought beyond academic and other institutional parameters, for political and cultural organization amongst artists, and for experimentation with modes, methods, and mediums in conjunction with concrete practice.
4.) Involve publics of 'artists' and 'non-artists' alike in constructive, collective, and critical analysis and debate of artistic operation.
If you are interested in participating as a performer at the PERFORMANCY FORUM please e-mail an inquiry to Esther and Brian at email@example.com with a bio/CV, description of proposed work, and any links (video is best) that would help us understand what you do. All other inquiries, same e-mail address.
PERFORMANCE ART OPEN MIC
First Sunday of every month, all members of the human community (and their friends) are invited to a free event at Panoply Performance Laboratory (104 Meserole St) to participate or just enjoy the Performance Art Open Mic, with MC Matthew Silver
- sign-up begins at 6:00pm
- each performer gets a maximum of 10 minutes to perform
- performances begin at 6:30pm
Performance Artists usually perform only once or twice a month, at very "important" art shows. Why do we always have to perform at very "important" art shows? This open mic adjusts the situation for "contemporary visual arts performance" and will give "professional" and "amateur" Performance Artists a chance to practice their craft (and experience the work of others) in an open and friendly environment. We will choose our own contexts, disciplinary distinctions, and heights-of-brows thank you very much.
PBR for a suggested donation
PPL is at 104 Meserole St: L to Montrose, G to Broadway, or M to Lorimer.
