Performing Histories a performance series with two exhibitions at MoMA
18/01/13, 14:51
The Museum of Modern Art presents Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the Past, a performance series held in conjunction with two exhibitions at MoMA: Tokyo 1950-1970: A New Avant-Garde (November 18, 2012, to February 25, 2013) and Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925 (December 23, 2012, to April 15, 2013). These performances constitute "live” responses to the contexts of the two exhibitions, highlighting various artistic methods of engaging with history through a wide range of forms–dance, music, theater, and performance art. The series includes works by Eiko & Koma, Ei Arakawa, Trajal Harrell, contact Gonzo, Kelly Nipper with Japanther, and Fabian Barba.
Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the Past emphasizes the travel and translation of artistic ideas, cultural forms, and historical motivations. The included works will trace pathways from early to mid-20th century, from European modernism to the Japanese post-war avant-garde, as well as through MoMA’s own institutional history. The swathe of performances in this series share an interest in holding the past and the present in close proximity–reinterpreting established narratives, reconfiguring contemporary understanding, and imagining different futures.
The series is organized by Sabine Breitwieser, Chief Curator, and Ana Janevski, Associate Curator, with Leora Morinis, Curatorial Assistant, and Jill Samuels, Performance Producer, Department of Media and Performance Art. Performances related to Tokyo 1955-1970 are co-organized by Doryun Chong, Associate Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture. Performances related to Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925, are co-organized by Leah Dickerman, Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture.
