Opening Friday, April 12th, from 3PM - 4PM
From the grotesque to the political, the mundane to the playful, performance art has evolved to encompass a wide range of creative approaches and attitudes. This four-part lecture series invites you to consider key moments in the history of performance art and explore the work of artists who are continuing to blur boundaries and redefine artistic practice. This series coincides with the launch of Iterations, an initiative presenting newly commissioned works by a range of artists over the next three years.
In the third lecture of the series, Dittmer Curator of Contemporary Art Hendrik Folkerts considers performance art in the 21st century, including the Art Institute’s current performance series, Iterations.
