We are pleased to announce the appointment of Quinn Dukes, Performance Is Alive Director, as Performance Art Curator for SATELLITE ART SHOW during Miami Art Week 2016. Additionally, Alexandra Hammond will return to Miami as Chief Correspondent for Performance Is Alive and Performance Art Project Manager at SATELLITE.
Performance Artists and actionists are invited to submit proposals to our PERFORMANCE ART @ SATELLITE OPEN CALL. The deadline for submissions is SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1ST 11:59PM. Selected artists will be notified in mid-October. Please note travel and accommodation stipends are currently unavailable. (We strive to achieve this benefit in future!)
SATELLITE, now located in South Beach, is an alternative art fair that presents new and exciting projects that span the gamut of art, music, performance, installation, new media and tech. Our 2015 show was highly attended by informed collectors and museum curators, received rave reviews from major art publications and had major sales throughout the week.
SATELLITE 2.0 will be held NEXT DOOR to Aqua Art Fair and steps from Art Basel and Untitled. The move to South Beach places SATELLITE in the heart of the action, providing us with unparalleled access to collectors and arts patrons alike. SATELLITE 2.0 will once again emphasize concept-driven rooms, rather than the typical salon style hang of the standard fairs.
We look forward to seeing you in Miami!
An influential group of performance art curators have teamed up to organize Outside/Inside, a multi-day performance event featuring site responsive performances on Spectacle Island, and Georges Island in the Boston Harbor, MA. Outside/Inside is an evolution of last year's Time, Body, Space, Objects. Among many performers were the Brooklyn-based performance collaborative, PPL (Esther Neff and Brian McCorkle) who performed a work influenced by the history of the island. Check out our discussion with PPL about their Spectacle Island performance here.
The curatorial team has launched an Open Call for performance works to premier on the islands on JULY 16th and AUGUST 13th. The application deadline is JUNE 3rd. More details below. APPLY! - QUINN DUKES
"There is a rich history of art happenings on the Boston Harbor Islands over the last twenty years, including last year’s installment of TBOS4 on Spectacle Island which was under the umbrella of The Island Arts Initiative that happened on Georges and Spectacle Islands during the summer of 2015. The Bumpkin Island Art Encampment which happened from 2007-2011 and was curated by Megan Dickerson, Carolyn Lewenberg and Jed Speare and was co-presented by Studio Soto, an artist performance/screening/exhibit space in Fort Point; Mobius; and the Island Alliance. Boston Cyber Arts, the National Park Service and Boston Harbor Island Alliance collaborated on an ongoing project on the LED screens at the Boston Harbor Island Pavilion on Boston’s Rose Kennedy Greenway for a 24 month stretch during 2014-2016, and through its public art program (formerly called Vita Brevis), the ICA Boston hosted Art on the Harbor islands in 2007.
We are seeking proposals for site-specific performance art work that responds to the history and natural environment of each island.
This public space in the Boston harbor invites artists to think about their work in a public destination which includes families, tourists and Bostonians. Being conscious and considerate of this audience is a must.
