If you’re hoping to see some art tonight but also don’t want to leave your couch, we have a solution: Beginning at 8:30 pm EST, the international internet performance art festival Low Lives will begin broadcasting online, with performances from artists around the world, including a number in Brooklyn.
This year’s Low Lives, the festival’s fourth edition, is co-produced by two local art spaces, Chez Bushwick and Spread Art. Brooklyn’s Grace Exhibition Space and Center for Performance Research will also participate, with live performances and streaming happening at both.
Grace hosts Elinor Thompson performing “No One Believes in Black Barbie” tonight at 9:11 pm, and the gallery will broadcast the rest of Low Lives from 8–11 pm. Meanwhile, the Center for Performance Research hosts Kanene Holder’s “DANGER/FEAR/ANGER: Blue Man is WOLF to Black Man” tomorrow at 5 pm, with a livestream of the festival from 3 to 6 pm.
Low Lives, founded by artist and curator Jorge Rojas, “celebrates the transmission of ideas beyond geographical and cultural borders, offering global audiences the opportunity to consider live performance in both physical and virtual space.” In that spirit, it might be best to experience it both ways — watch a little at home (tune in here) and then head over to a nearby gallery.
