Benjamin Patterson’s new work A Penny for Your Thoughts promotes an exchange between artist and viewer in which the artist offers participants hats constructed from newspapers in exchange for an idea, imbuing the performance with a type of humor common to many Fluxus projects.
Co-organized by the Grey Art Gallery, NYU; The Studio Museum in Harlem; and Performa.
Three Duets, Seven Variations, a special series for the Performa 13 biennial, pairing six intergenerational artists for seven programs, is presented as part of Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art. This program is organized by Adrienne Edwards, Performa, and Thomas J. Lax, The Studio Museum in Harlem.
Radical Presence is curated by Valerie Cassel Oliver, Senior Curator, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, and presented in New York in two parts: Part I at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery (September 10–December 7, 2013) and Part II at The Studio Museum in Harlem (November 14, 2013–March 9, 2014).
