Performance Now
Krakow Theatrical Reminiscences
October 4, 2014 - October 26, 2014

Performance Now, on view at the Bunkier Sztuki Gallery as part of the 39th Krakow Theatrical Reminiscences this October, includes films, videos, installations and photographs by international artists who have crutially contributed to the field of performance art in the 21st century. Performance Now brings together the most significant artists working internationally with performance today: Claire Fontaine, Santiago Sierra, Clifford Owens, Yael Bartana, Guy Ben-Ner, William Kentridge and many more. As part of the festival, Krakow Theatrical Reminiscences will host a series of performances, screenings and talks focusing on the politics of performance, how visual artists create theatre, and artists’ responses to socio-politics at large. Other events will include events with Tino Sehgal, Boris Charmatz, Vera Mantero, Claire Bishop and others. Central to it all, Performance Now will be the jumping off point in which to explore these questions and others throughout the run of the festival. RoseLee Goldberg will present the exhibition and a lecture on her research on Thursday, October 9th.

RoseLee Goldberg

RoseLee Goldberg’s seminal study, Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present (first published in 1979 and now in its third edition) is regarded as the leading text for understanding the development of the genre and has been translated into more languages (including Chinese, Croatian, French, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian) than any other book of its kind. When director of the Royal College of Art (RCA) Gallery in London, Goldberg established a program that pioneered an integrative approach to curating exhibitions, performance, and symposia, directly involving the various departments of the RCA in all aspects of the exhibitions program. As curator at The Kitchen in New York she continued to advocate for multi-disciplinary practices to have equal prominence by establishing the exhibition space, a video viewing room, and a performance series. It was here that Goldberg curated the first solo exhibitions of Cindy Sherman, Sherri Levine, Robert Longo, Jack Goldstein and The Kipper Kids, among others. Most recently, her vision in the creation of Performa has set a precedent for performance art that is now impacting museum programming and diverse audiences across the U.S. and abroad. In 2010 she was awarded the ICI Agnes Gund Curatorial Award and in 2006 named a Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters. Since 1987, Goldberg has taught at New York University.
