SWISS INSTITUTE ??“ CONTEMPORARY ART




495 Broadway, 3rd Floor, New York, NY
T: (212) 925-2035

November 5-6, 12 noon Saturday to 12 noon Sunday (24 hours).

PERFORMA and Swiss Institute ??“ Contemporary Art present 24 Hour Incidental, a series of simultaneous live performances over a 24 hour period by artists spanning several generations, including John Armleder, Peter Coffin, Jason Dodge, Annika Eriksson, Piero Golia, Carsten H?Άller, Karl Holmqvist, Koo Jeong-A, and Christoph Keller and will feature Yoko Ono Yes Ladder.

Yoko Ono??™s historic ???Yes Ladder??™ will share the space with Koo Jeong-A??™s construction, made on the spot, of materials she finds within the SI??™s gallery and storage areas, while Piero Golia will set up a hammock and sleep through the whole 24-hour event, so that he will have no memory of the show. Each artist is given full rights over the space, however all works will function in different dimensions; sound, invisibility, conversation, construction, hallucination, documentation, contemplation, and impulse. The program will thus be defined by unpredictability; at any given moment during the span of the event, performances will take place concurrently in numerous combinations.

24-Hour Incidental is curated by artist Jordan Wolfson for PERFORMA05, and is a co-production of the Swiss Institute ??“ Contemporary Art and PERFORMA.

The event has been made possible in part with the support of the American Scandinavia Foundation, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and IASPIS.

Special thanks to Izze Sodas, Nespresso and Stella Artois for in-kind donations.
