NOT FOR SALE: Writing on Performance and New Media is a dynamic continuation of the discussion on performance and its relationship to the museum, gallery, critic and collector. The two-part symposium comprised of a distinguished panel of critics and curators will offer an in-depth view of contemporary developments in writings on ephemeral works of art that encompass several creative disciplines.

1:30-3:00 PM
SESSION I: Curating (and Writing on) Performance in the 21st Century
More and more contemporary artists from around the world make live art and performance-related film and video, as well as installation art, with an ever-increasing presence in museums and galleries. How does the current generation of curators, critics, and writers tackle curating and writing about performance differently from the past? In what way has the relationship between the artist, curator, and museum changed over the past decade? A panel of critics and curators will discuss the art of curating performance today.

Catherine Wood, Curator, Tate Modern, London
Katy Siegel, Art historian, Curator and Critic
Phillippe Vergne, Chief Curator, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis

Moderated by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, Senior Editor, Parkett

3:30-5:00 PM
SESSION II: Writing (and Reviewing) Across Borders-Performance and New Media
Critics and writers on art today need to be well versed in many languages including film, dance, literature, music, architecture and new media. How does an author write across disciplines? How much background in each individual history does a writer need in order to illuminate this multidisciplinary work and to explain its relevance in a broader cultural context to ever-evolving audiences? A panel of critics and writers will explore these questions as they relate to the research, development, and presentation of visual art performance.

Margo Jefferson, Writer and Critic
John Rockwell, Dance Critic, The New York Times
Bennett Simpson, Associate Curator, ICA Boston
Linda Yablonsky, novelist and critic
Moderated by RoseLee Goldberg, Founder and Director of PERFORMA
