Where Art and Life Collide
From April 28 through May 5 2006, Ron Athey, Franko B, and Vaginal Davis come to New York for a series of premiere performances, lectures and events focusing on the unique way in which all three artists’ work challenges the separation between art and life.
In modern societies, the power of private experience is often filtered through the norms of social convention and the repression of difference. Ron Athey, Franko B, and Vaginal Davis challenge these constraints, sharing a commitment to artistic practices which transcend the boundaries of career, or marketplace and move into the space of life, or “who they are.”
The whole thing kicks off on Friday, April 28, 6:00-8:00 PM with
PERFORMA founder and director Roselee Goldberg hosts NOT FOR SALE: WE ARE STILL APPALLED panel discussion with critic C. Carr, Professor Susan Jarosi, and the artist Orlan. At the Einstein Auditorium, NYU Steinhardt: Department of Art and Art Professions, Barney Building, 34 Stuyvesant Street, FREE, with a reception sponsored by the Sullivan Street Bakery.
