Performance Matters, Performing Idea – Other Durations5th October 3:00-7:30pmToynbee StudiosWith: Janine Antoni, Matthew Goulish, Bojana Kunst, Boyan Manchev, Fred Moten and Lara ShalsonTime in Western Cultures continues to accelerate and a slower unregulated life is seemingly nowhere to be found. Contemporary art has seen a resurgence of performances of long and short durations and a re-valuation of historical works of duration. Artists are increasingly playing with, inhabiting and transforming the time of the artwork. Speakers will address questions of how we can now think of the time of performance? What are the relations between performance, time and cultural value? How is performance reconfiguring and othering our understandings and experiences of time?
