Come out this Friday and Saturday night — 7pm to 12am each night — for the Maximum Perception Performance Festival at the English Kills Art Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn
Curated by Peter Dobill and Phoenix Lights, the 2011 Maximum Perception Festival will take place over two nights and showcase 17 national and international performance artists, focusing on presenting a dynamic range of contemporary performance practice from the best emerging artists in performance.
Maximum Perception will feature newly commissioned performance works in addition to site-specific actions and ongoing projects from all participating artists.
Established as a critically acclaimed festival/exhibition in 2008 to survey the Brooklyn performance art scene, the Maximum Perception Performance Festival has evolved to become a yearly showcase for the forefront of performance art practice in New York City and beyond. The festival has presented over 40 artists in the past two years, with 15 of the 17 artists this year performing at Maximum Perception for the first time.
