The Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival (BIPAF) July 4-28, 2013.
BIPAF is a Brooklyn festival celebrating the new energy around performance art and showcasing as much of it as possible!
If you are already curated as an artist in BIPAF, remember that you are also an organizer/collaborating performer...get ready to staff other events, help with tech, take photos, distribute catalogs, hand out fliers, and more (what can you do?) in June and July if not before.
Performance artists have long been dealing with their own situation and the overarching contexts in which their work exists. Our deeper levels of consideration regarding social interaction/interface are catalyzing new performance movements all over the world, while art world structures (let alone other social and economic structures) remain largely unpenetrable and disinterested in anything other than "art-products." Meta-organization of BIPAF is framed as a collaborative performance work involving social forms, economic systems, relational disciplines, and conceptual practices to engage with the actual performance work being done; BIPAF's "performative fluxstructure" gives us all the opportunity to collectively (+ live) construct situations that follow our ideas and practices all the way through, as we are able to creatively consider the implications of everything we do, from exhibition form through documentation, through funding, through critical analysis. Slow, money poor but resource-rich, communal yet dependent on leadership acts, BIPAF will be exactly what you make it out to be, and nothing more.

About Grace Exhibition Space
Grace Exhibition Space opened in 2006 and 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. We believe this is how performance art is meant to be experienced.
"There is no designated stage area, blurring the line between audience and performer, and seating is sparse, as participating in the performance is encouraged. The unknown terrifies you, and yet something, maybe this very feeling, pushes you inside. Welcome to Grace Exhibition Space." Terri Ciccoe. Bushwick Daily January, 2013
"On each night, and in each performance, the human body is redeemed from the mundane and made anew." David Lagaccia, Williamsburg Greenpoint News+Art (June, 2012)READ THE ARTICLE HERE:
