TALKaCTIVE: Performance Art Conversation Series

10.17.15, 2:00 pm

NYC based artist, Hector Canonge continues with the presentation of the monthly program “TALKaCTIVE: performance art conversation series” hosted at the Queens Museum.

After the successful premiere of the independent initiative this past September, TALKaCTIVE returns this month to the museum to continue with more topics in relation to Performance Art. Participating artists will explore the theme of “Movement & Mediation” in Live Action Art.  This month’s conversation and panel discussion includes the participation of artists whose Performance Art work relate to the poetics of corporal expression and the experimentation of various forms of creative embodiment.

Invited artists: Danielle Abrams, Sindy Butz, Lital Dotan & Eyal Perry, Honey Jernquist (Honey McMoney), and Kuldeep Singh.

Mediator: Daniel S. DeLuca, curator and director of MOBIUS.

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.
