Next week NYC kicks off Armory Week. Thus far, only a few fairs have promoted performance art as a part of their programming (sigh). With the break of Fountain Art Fair from Armory Week this year, performance art viewing possibilities are noticeably lean.
I am delighted to report however that SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW will present performance art programming throughout the duration of Armory Week thanks to the curatorial selections of AKArt in an exhibition titled, Transgressive Inversions + Identities. The multi-media exhibition will feature works by 7 artists including live performances by KATYA GROKHOVSKY and UJIN LEE. I have always deemed Katya an entertaining, relevant and critical performance artist. This is a wonderful opportunity to view her live works.
According to the press release, Grokhovsky will engage with exhibition attendees during 'Slow Dance', a participatory, live, durational performance-intervention — and 'Status Update', a durational action-intervention, in which digital social media status updates are transported into physical reality via acrylic-on-canvas banners. Lee will present 'Small Rotunda' a participatory, site-specific performance during which Lee fills the exhibition space with a common household item bojagi—traditional cloths collected from Lee’s hometown of Seoul, South Korea, used for wrapping and transporting goods from time immemorial.
