COLLECTIVE / PERFORMATIVE:
This exhibition responds to the abundance of recent attention given to performance art, and specifically to the shifting terms used to define viewer engagement: "collaborative," "relational," "participatory," and "delegated" to name a few. From the Performa Biennial to Creative Times Living as Form to the increased offerings of academic degrees in performance art as well as degrees in curating performance, Collective/Performative: interrogates potential new performance structures and practices as investigated by artists and organizations
Rachel Parry [UK], Adam Rose [Chicago, IL] and Ryan Hawk [Houston, TX] will be performing at Grace Exhibition Space this Friday night, starting at 9:30 pm
ABOUT GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE for PERFORMANCE ART
"Grace Exhibition Space is the sole gallery in this city that shows specifically, in its most intentionally narrow definition, Performance Art."
Patricia Milder, The Brooklyn Rail (May, 2011)
Grace Exhibition Space, since 2006, is devoted exclusively to Performance Art. We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging performance works by the current generation of international performance artists, whether emerging, mid career or established.
Being a Brooklyn loft, our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. This is how performance art is meant to be experienced and our mission is the glorification of performance art.
"Through such intimate encounters between performance groups and their guests, they could follow in the spirit of Yoko Ono's Chamber Street loft or the Surrealist soirees of Paris."
Warren Fry, The Brooklyn Rail (August, 2007)
