We are so excited to invite you to the first of many Performance Is Alive events this fall! On Saturday, September 7th, we will present an encore screening of our video program originally presented at Satellite Art Show during SXSW. This screening program will be followed by a pre-fair party celebrating the upcoming Satellite Art Show NYC.
Among the 15 video projects, our screening program features the work of award winning filmmakers, Tif Robinette + Ian Deleón (aka PULSAR) for their film, Velvet Cry, a story inspired by the 18th century hoax of Mary Toft. An unexpected character is positioned to execute karaoke in Ryan Hawk’s video, Sweet Surrender. Jessica Yatrofsky and NY FEM FACTORY’s video stars Lil’ Touches performing the story of a scorned woman “calling out” a former lover in Cunt Keeper. Award winning artist, Chun Hua Catherine Dong’s, The Sign, explores the visual culture of shame in relation to the body.
