TALKaCTIVE: Performance Art Conversation Series

12.12.15, 2:00 pm

After the successful run of ITINERANT 2015 -Performance Art Festival NYC, Hector Canonge continues the production of Live Art programs in the city. This month he continues with the presentation of the program “TALKaCTIVE: performance art conversation series” hosted at the Queens Museum.

TALKaCTIVE premiered at the Queens Museum in September 2015. Following two successful programs, the independent initiative returns this month to the museum to continue with more topics in relation to Performance Art. For December TALKaCTIVE will explore the theme of “Performance & Ritual” in Live Action Art.  This month’s presentations, conversation, and panel discussion includes de participation of invited artists whose work (de)construct notions of the ritual, challenge habitual tasks, and offer an array of performative manifestations in relation to sacred practices and secular interpretations.

Invited artists: Tsedaye Makonnen, Rafael Sanchez, René Kladzyk, Bobby English Jr., and Ronit Levin Delgado.

Moderated by Hector Canonge.

 “TALKaCTIVE: perfomance art conversation series” is a new program that fosters dialogue and exchange among Live Action Art practitioners, encourages commentary about Performance Art, and prompts reflection about performative processes, methodologies, and styles. Every session is organized around a relevant topic in Performance Art, and the presentation of works by a group of selected artists who share their work, discuss their approach to Live Art, and engage in open conversation with critics, curators, and attending audience. The monthly series consists of a presentation, panel, and open Q&A session where participating artists screen documentation of their work, a curator or critic contextualizes the works presented, and a moderator mediates the exchange of information and resources.

TALKaCTIVE is an independent initiative created and organized by artist Hector Canonge. Hosted at the Queens Museum, the monthly series is free of charge and open to the general public.
