Viewing Room: Mark Beasley and Arto Lindsay
Location: 525 West 20th Street
11am exhibition opens / 6:30–8pm performance
Organized by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, curator of contemporary art at the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, with artist Alejandro Cesarco, Viewing Room is a roving series of events in which a single artwork from the contemporary collection of the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros is exhibited for a day with an accompanying public program. Audiences are invited to experience seminal yet rarely seen artworks—in most cases never before exhibited in New York—and to participate in programs designed to help articulate the working processes and contexts in which these works were created.
For this event, Mark Beasley, curator of Performa, offers a lecture responding to a 2010 performance by artist Regina José Galindo titled Looting—which involved a dental procedure performed in part at a clinic in the artist’s native Guatemala, and in part at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. (Looting has since been presented in the form of photography, video, and sculpture, and takes the last form here in an installation.) Accompanying this lecture, musician Arto Lindsay will perform an original soundtrack. A numbing beverage will be served.
This episode of Viewing Room is organized in collaboration with The Kitchen, and is open to the public free of cost.
Please note that the installation and performance do not take place at The Kitchen. They appear at 525 West 20th Street, with the installation opening there at 11am and the performance taking place 6:30–8pm.
RSVP is encouraged: email@example.com
