A series of exciting announcements

Big things are about to transpire at ART! Following two years of neglecting this blog while I pursued other interests, I am returning to it this year with passion and renewed commitment. Over the next few weeks I’ll be rolling out a series of exciting announcements related to the blog’s growth. ART! will soon be expanding to accommodate a greater variety of voices, coverage and material than ever before — which is how it was always meant to be.

For today, I’m just going to drop one teaser announcement that is tangentially related to this blog. Perform Chinatown, LA’s scrappy annual festival of performance art that’s been happening (and covered by this blog) since 2009, will be curated this year by none other than yours truly in partnership with the awesome Chloë Flores. I am super excited to take on this challenge with a friend whose work and vision I totally respect. We’ve already got a bunch of ideas brewing and look forward to conducting an epic series of studio visits as we attempt to put together one of the best Perform Chinatowns ever. Stay tuned for more details!!

And finally, don’t forget that the Performance Now radio show, hosted by myself and John Tain, is still going strong on KCHUNG Radio every third Sunday at 5pm. Check out our most recent show here, an in-depth interview with Rafa Esparza, who we think is one of the most important artists working in LA today.

  1. Doug, get me into Perform Chinatown naked again. Shocking. Controversial. Disturbing. Funny. Odd. Interactive. Let’s mix and match. – Michael

    Hi Carol,

    Do you have any plans to go to NY for the Whitney Biennial? I’m not sure if you’re going to be covering it on Another Righteous Transfer, but I wanted to give you the heads up on Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst’s project. They’re going to be premiering a new series of photographs titled ‘Relationship’, which are casual snapshots that they took of themselves and each other, or together, over the course of their relationship, from 2008 to the present. The series also documents their personal transition. Would you be interested in seeing them? We have posted them on our private page and I can create a username and password that will you give access. Also, I wanted to ask about the possibility of featuring them (with or without an interview) in one of your upcoming blog postings (after the Biennial opens since they have an exclusive until then).

    Best,

    Luis

    Oh, I forgot…they are going to be doing a performance during the Biennial, probably around early/mid April. I can fill you in.

    Thanks, Luis
