Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the Past


Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the Past
Sep 12, 2012 - May 25, 2013
The Department of Media and Performance Art presents a series of performances under the title Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the...
Past, held in collaboration with the exhibitions Performing Histories, Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925, and Tokyo 1955–1970: A New Avant-Garde. These performances constitute “live” responses to the contexts of the three exhibitions, highlighting various artistic methods of engaging with history.
Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the Past emphasizes the travels of artistic ideas, forms, and events across territories and times, from the early 20th century to the mid-20th century, from the European heartland of modernism to the Far-Eastern hotbed of avant-gardes, as well as the continuing force and inspiration they exert on contemporary practices across mediums and disciplines. A wide range of performances are included, including dance, music, theater, and performance art—all anchored in history and resonating with the three related exhibitions and the state of performance art in general.
The series starts on September 12, 2012, with a performance by Andrea Fraser, and continues until spring 2013.
