Performance is as much an exercise of endurance for the viewer (who often also becomes the artist) as it is for the artist (who is often also the viewer). This weekend, Chinatown will go balls out with Perform! Now!, the second annual installation of what seems to be evolving into the West Coast’s version of Performa. Four whole days of nonstop performance, beginning tonight with a special fundraiser at Human Resources, will put your stamina and commitment to the test! View the complete schedule now in all its splendor. Don’t miss the hidden details to be found on the fabulous photos page.
Among the many notable happenings Saturday will be Vlatka Horvat’s This Here and That There, a performance in the LA River presented by Outpost for Contemporary Art. Originally scheduled to happen months ago, this epic chair arrangement was unfortunately washed out by torrential rains. The forecast for this weekend is sunny!
