PERFORMA05 PROGRAM by Venues

PRESENTATIONS/ CO-PRESENTATIONS

PERFORMA05 has been curated by a consortium of independent organizers and curators at New York's leading arts organizations. Each curator was invited to propose a program especially for PERFORMA05 that focused on performance by visual artists. Proposals were reviewed by PERFORMA's director and curatorial team, with the goal of providing a broad spectrum of opinion on contemporary performance in the visual arts. Some venues invited additional proposals from independent curators. With a total of 98 artists at more than 20 venues, PERFORMA05 reflects the selection of fourteen active curators.

PAUL D. MILLER aka DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid: Reset

Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts
November 14, 7 – 10 pm (doors open at 6.30) (following Berni Searle performance)

In his new work, Reset, New York-based artist Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, will re-construct Nam Jun Paik’s 1971 performance TV Cello. Originally a collaboration between Korean-born artist, Nam Jun Paik and cellist/performance artist Charlotte Moorman (1933-91), TV Cello was a playable instrument made of cello components and television sets, assembled in the form of a cello.

The television screens streamed pre-recorded videos and live video footage of the performances, in which Moorman would play the TV Cello.

Reset invokes some of the major elements of Paik’s original work, including live performance, composed sound, and multi-media projection. Musical and video accompaniment to the work will be composed and performed by Miller, who has recorded pioneering performance and video artist Joan Jonas reading selected statements by Paik on the subject of music and composition, which will be projected onto a live performer.

Presented by PERFORMA, and Museum for African Art at Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts.
