Performa 11, New York
- Wednesday 16 November 2011
Green On Red Gallery are delighted to announce Dennis McNulty's participation in Performa 11, New York.
The Eyes of Ayn Rand begins with a meditation on the house that Konstantin Melnikov designed for himself in Moscow in 1927 and follows a path that leads to Ayn Rand's eyes scanning a TV studio in New York in 1958, Dennis McNulty creates a spatial, gestural, sonic, and linguistic performance around these two scenes which have their origins in the rupture of Communist Russia.
Performa 11, the fourth edition of the internationally acclaimed biennial of new visual art performance presented by Performa, will be held in New York City from November 1–21, 2011. The three-week biennial will showcase new work by more than 100 of the most exciting artists working today, in an innovative program breaking down the boundaries between visual art, music, dance, poetry, fashion, architecture, graphic design, and the culinary arts. Presented in collaboration with a consortium of more than 50 arts institutions and over 50 curators, as well as a network of public spaces and private venues across the city, Performa 11 will ignite New York City with energy and ideas, acting as a vital “think tank” linking minds across the five boroughs and bringing audiences together for brilliant new performances in all disciplines.
Founded by RoseLee Goldberg in 2004, Performa is the leading organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of twentieth-century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century.
