With Performa 13 on the horizon, New Yorkers’ thoughts turn to performance art, and that’s why for our next Hyperallergic ArtTalk on Monday, October 7, we’ve invited art historian and curator RoseLee Goldberg.
The powerhouse behind Performa and a leading figure in the research and documentation of performance art, Goldberg will discuss her passion for performance, her extensive research on the topic, her observations on the changing nature of the art form, and discuss Performa, which has quickly become the world’s leading performance biennial.
Goldberg wrote the pioneering study of performance art, Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present (1979 & 2000), which has been translated into nine languages. As curator at the Kitchen in New York, she presented works by Laurie Anderson, Phillip Glass, and Meredith Monk, and curated the first solo exhibitions of Robert Longo, David Salle, and Cindy Sherman.
Hyperallergic ArtTalk invites leading voices in the arts to join an intimate gathering of art aficionados, artists, and arts professionals to spark discussion, debate, and further action about an evolving idea or project that they are passionate about in the world of art.
The event will take place at The Bedford (110 Bedford Avenue, entrance on North 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211), 7–9pm.
Tickets ($10) are available below and through Eventbrite, and include a complimentary cocktail. No tickets will be sold at the door.
