NEW YORK | Thinking Performance

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10028 United States (map)

"Field Meeting Take 3: Thinking Performance" an exclusive art forum staging performances, talks and discussions with over 30 keynote figures. Continuing Field Meeting's unique approach in providing an open platform for direct interaction between artists and audience, Thinking Performance foregrounds the multiplicity and critical role of performance work coming out of the context of Asia. In relationship to activism, ethics, body, tradition, writing and collective experience, Thinking Performance focuses on individual artists’ current practices while taking into consideration their dynamic relationship with historical discourses and social and political conditions. More importantly in the realm of this expanding field, Thinking Performance invites broader, more nuanced interpretations of performance work and fresh understandings of performativity in artistic production at large. Speakers include the New York Times Critic Holland Cotter and Director of the Witte de With Center Defne Ayas, among others.
