POXXI: Performance of the XXI Century

TRIAD is collaborating with MAXXI Museum (Rome) and Lilith Performance Studio (Malmö) on a three-year project under the banner of ‘Performance of the XXI Century’ (POXXI).

This project has emerged as a reaction to significant developments over the last decade in performance art in the XXI century

Emerging out of the 1900s, performance has developed in various forms during the second half of the century. In the last decade many organizations, art collectives and art institutions have developed innovative projects focused on performance of different scales and durations.

POXXI aims at complementing the productive efforts of these organizations and artists in producing cultural awareness on performance art, integrating it with a structured and systematic methodological approached.

The aim of this three-year project is to explore and improve the critical role of performance as an artistic expression in the history of twentieth century art encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century.

We want to illuminate the enormous significance of performance in contemporary art.

POXXI AIMS TO ACHIEVE THE FOLLOWING:

-Commission new performance projects by using a methodology that uses research and presentation in an innovative way.

-Communicate and collaborate with art institutions and cultural organizations in Europe to create dynamic and historically significant performance awareness.

-Offer an ongoing educational platform for expanding the knowledge and understanding of this critical area of visual art and cultural history.

Performance can be described by its “non-being-ness”: it is neither “object”, acting, or dance, it does not properly belong to any established discipline. Performance explores and questions the way we look at the body in our society, both the language of the body and the language of our society. We aim at answering this issue by creating a platform that allows performance art to be researched, developed, exhibited and communicated.

The selected artists will develop their concepts into performance exhibitions, one every year, during a three-month residency at LILITH. The same project will be displayed at MAXXI at a yearly festival of performance, which aims to create audience development on an institutional and public level. TRIAD will focus on developing educational programmes to engage a greater audience.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS:
As part of the educational programme of the performance Enough About You, TRIAD is giving the opportunity to art students and artists to participate in a workshop created and lead by Jerusalem-born artist Einat Amir. The workshop explores notions of body, space and intimacy between strangers. We will play with some performative scenarios, through which we will ask questions about meaning, (gently) explore our personal borders and use the human body as our basic creative substance.

Workshop 1 is on the 9th October 2015 from 2pm – 4pm
Workshop 2 is on the 10th October 2015 from 2pm – 4pm Each workshop has a capacity of 20 people and lasts 90 minutes.

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Enough About You explores relationships in their most organic state, revealing how individuals relate to one another when confronted with a constructed reality, as strangers become intimate and viewers become voyeurs. It is inspired by the new possibilities of virtual socialising and the instant intimacies offered in modern times. Amir blurs the boundaries between performance and authenticity in an ambitious and stimulating way, constructing lab-like circumstances in an attempt to test the limits and relations between two strangers in an intimate situation. Enough About You, a participatory performance by Einat Amir. In collaboration with the MAXXI Museum, Rome and the Lilith Performance Studio, Malmö.
