PERFORMANCY FORUM XII: THIS SATURDAY!

PERFORMANCY FORUM is a monthly exhibition and thinktank revolving around post-product performance work, including music, theater, dance, video, installation, action, and all that exists in between these mediums. Events are structured around the needs of the artists, creating spectator/artist relationships, participation frameworks, and platforms that allow the work to operate in an intentional manner. Past PERFORMANCY FORUMS have addressed female authorship, the roots of performance art, map-based music, and found materials…new curators, collaborations with collectives and other groups, and artists are always welcome. Full list of PERFORMANCY FORUM artists is on its way…
