Performance Now: The First Decade of the New Century

This Tuesday, September 11, "Performance Now: The First Decade of the New Century" opens at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.  The exhibition, curated by Performa's RoseLee Goldberg, brings together some of the most important and exciting performance artists in practice today, examining the ways that the ephemerality of live work is transformed into altogether new art works through documentation, and how visual artists use performance throughout their creative process.  

Performance is capable of activating museums and audiences like no other medium, and this program demonstrates that performance is not only contemporary, but the art of the future as well.

"Performance Now" also includes a series of lectures and film screenings; more information is available here
