The Prompt for Performa 09

I still haven’t browsed thru the multitude of events for Performa, and am honestly not planning to attend anything that has a price. But I did get an email from Silvershed, a space that is currently hosting shows for the collective ABCyz and they are collaborating with Kunstverein NY, also at Silvershed for this 4 day performance.  A conceptual social club where cues are offered as conversation pieces, which oddly enough was taught in my social etiquette class to never have conversation starter pieces because it’s just poor taste. But art and taste, judgment, and interaction go hand in hand in this performance with multi-interactivity between performers and viewers/spectators/audience and music.

I rsvp for Nov 14th. BE THERE.
