Ed Atkins: Performance Capture

Webimage 1

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

Under the equivocal rubric "Performance Capture," Ed Atkins will present an expansive new work explicitly concerned with how contemporary technologies of representation mediate our lives – to say nothing of our own willingness to be captured and rendered. Corralling live bodies, animated surrogates, and departed performances, the gallery will act as both screening room and venue for performances and public programs. By ceding control to other authors in order to create multiple iterations of one work, the exhibition will ultimately act, according to Atkins, as "a document whose data is yet to be uncovered, let alone indexed." 

Curated by Tim Griffin and Lumi Tan as part of “From Minimalism into Algorithm.”

April 13–May 14 

Opening Wednesday, April 13, 5–9pm with performances by Okkyung Lee, Ches Smith, and Ben Vida.

Performance Schedule:

Saturday, April 23, 7pm: Graham Lambkin
Tuesday, April 26, 7pm: Bob Bellerue, Marcia Bassett, and Matthew Regula
Saturday, May 14, 2pm: C. Spencer Yeh
Saturday, May 14, 6pm: Closing performance with the artist

Please note the gallery will be closed between 5:30–6pm on May 14th in preparation for the performance at 6pm. 

Lunchtime performances with the artist will occur every Wednesday and Friday at 1:30pm. 

This exhibition is made possible with support from LUMA Foundation, Thea Westreich Wagner & Ethan Wagner, Melanie Shorin & Greg S. Feldman, Robert Soros, Shane Akeroyd, Eleanor Cayre, Charlotte Feng Ford, Christen & Derek Wilson, Lonti Ebers, National Endowment for the Arts, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Footage from "Performance Capture" originally commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and Manchester Art Gallery.
