Performance as Publishing

— NY Art Book Fair, MoMA Ps1

I take an empty space and call it a bare stage

25 September 2014

Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair, hosted by MoMA Ps1, is the biggest fair of its kind. The events programme in The Classroom is a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. Performance as Publishing launched the programme on the opening¬† night, with a series performances by UK and USA based artists, employing music, projection and spoken word to create stage, drama and tension.
