On June 16 (Wednesday), Elise Bernhardt, Executive Director of The Kitchen, invites four artists whose site-specific performances have had a profound impact on their surrounding communities to show filmed excerpts of their work and discuss their creative process. The panel, which is entitled Performances in Public Space: Four Distinct Aesthetics and Strategies, includes Martha Bowers, whose community-based projects in Red Hook have aided in the urban renewal of that neighborhood; Stephan Koplowitz, whose large scale works with dancers have transformed the windows of Grand Central Terminal and the grand steps of New York buildings; Tamar Rogoff, whose Ivye Project involved a village in Belarus that was forever changed by the Holocaust; and Mary Ellen Strom, whose collaborative projects have included video projections on everything from grain silos to the mountains of Montana.
