International Exhibition of Live Performances Streamed Worldwide

Low Lives is pleased to present Low Lives 4, the fourth installment in a series of annual international art events. Low Lives 4 will feature more than 50 live performance-based works over two days, each transmitted over the web and projected in real time at venues across the globe. The exhibition will begin on Friday, April 27 from 8:30-11:30p.m. (EST) and continue on Saturday, April 28 from 3:00–6:00 p.m. (EST).

Low Lives highlights works that critically investigate, challenge, and extend the potential of performative practices. The project celebrates the transmission of ideas beyond geographical and cultural borders, offering global audiences the opportunity to consider live performance in both physical and virtual space.

Low Lives 4 is co-produced by the Brooklyn-based arts organizations Chez Bushwick (www.chezbushwick.net) and SPREAD ART (www.spreadart.org), as well as Colombian artist, Juan Obando (www.juanobando.com).

A live simulcast of the event will be streamed on April 27 and 28 at lowlives.net/home/.
