RijksakademieLIVE #4 focuses on performance, this year's emphasis during RijksakademieOPEN. Discussion and performances featuring at the 4th issue of RijksakademieLIVE evolve a.o. around the ideas of direct actions, re-enactment and dance.
The evening will start with a re-invention of Allan Kaprow's environment Words, in the form of a fictional conversation between a contemporary painter and the phantom of American artist Allan Kaprow, performed by former Rijksakademie residents Mark Boulos and Steve Van den Bosch. They talk about painting, the relationship between art & life, and the re-invention of ephemeral art forms such as environments and happenings. Philippe Pirotte will then conduct a conversation with Stephanie Rosenthal (Curator Hayward Gallery, London) who co-curated the retrospective Allan Kaprow - Art As Life in 2007. At the Hayward Gallery, she was also the curator of Move: Choreographing You and she prepares an exhibition on Chinese performance art next year. Former Rijksakademie resident Jimmy Robert will join the conversation to talk about the appropriation of structures of other artists, choreographers or writers in his performance and other work. The evening will be concluded by an invitation to the public to participate inPhysique of Consciousness, a cultural fitness, proposed by Shanghai-based MadeIn Company.
