********************************************
ABOUT PF:

PERFORMANCY FORUM is a clustering, condensing, and critical effort comprising interdisciplinary exhibitions (emphasis on performance art, social performance practices, and participatory/publicly engaged work), workshops, conferences, actions, events, and more.

PERFORMANCY FORUM began in 2009 as a project of the Panoply Performance Laboratory (PPL) while the collective was in residence at Surreal Estate. It has since become an open project, collaborating with spaces, sites, curatorial collectives, and many others to:

1.) Forge IN-PERSON relationships (including collaborations) between artists from different artistic mediums and micro-communities.

2.) Perform collective research, including contextualization of current performance and social practices within historic, economic, socio-political, and aesthetic genealogies.

3.) Provide a site (physical and cognitive) for complex and critical thought beyond academic and other institutional parameters, for political and cultural organization amongst artists, and for experimentation with modes, methods, and mediums in conjunction with concrete practice.

4.) Involve publics of ‘artists’ and ‘non-artists’ alike in constructive, collective, and critical analysis and debate of artistic operation.

*********************************************
SPACE CONDITIONS:
If your proposal is accepted, we ask that you schedule a site visit with us if you have never been to PPL. We allow almost all forms of mess, fire, nudity, drilling holes, hanging things from the ceiling, etc. Sidewalk, nearby baseball diamond, and other public areas are usable in addition to the approx. 20’X20′ whitebox. We have PA, microphones, music stands, small tables, chairs, a piano, a projector, and clip lighting.

******asterik notes from schedule***********
*The space also hosts “Performance Art Open Space” on the first Sunday of every month for works-in-progress and 10-minute actions without the critical framework of PERFORMANCY FORUM. Sign-up begins at 5pm day-of.

**NOTE: September’s durational performances will take place at goodbye blue monday on Sunday, September 29 as part of Experi-MENTAL Fest 5 and will feature Sindy Butz, PPL, and Geraldo Mercado. This exhibition is closed for submissions.

Thank you for your interest!
