Head down to Howard Art Project for Perma-F(r)ail: Personae Documents, a multi-disciplinary exhibition curated byJessica Borusky.
Performances by Nabeela Vega // Maggie Cavallo // Dell M. Hamilton
Borusky writes: “Persona within art can be understood as a lens by which to view or understand art making; meaning, what is the physical body behind the work produced and shown, and how is that generating particular affect(s) for the viewer? Or, it can be seen as an artistic endeavor in and of itself; meaning, how does one observe and understand performativity of self, the flux and presentation of identity-making, within real-time, and then extrapolate that experience for viewers outside of the originally designated site of construction?”
Perma-F(r)ail: Personae Documents brings together work by artists from around the country who use video, writing, performance, photography, and changing installation strategies to explore personae in new, provocative, and ultimately, ephemeral ways.

For those of us that are mobile and ready, catch this nomadic exhibition in NYC next week with live performances by Robert Chamberlin, Joanna Tam, and Nabeela Vega. The three performances shown at PPL will deal with intimacy and identification as it relates to a notion of an ever-shifting daily performance of self.July 28 8pm @Panoply Performance Laboratory (Brooklyn)
