TPS Reports: Performance Documents
February 2011 (Exhibition)
October 5, 2010 (entry deadline)
About the Exhibition:
TPS Reports: Performance Documents is an exhibition of the “stuff” that results from performances: detritus, photographs, drawings, sculptures, videos, etc. We are not interested in the documentation of the performance itself, just the results. We are mostly looking for the items that were made as the primary goal of the performance.
About The Theme:
How do these items live on after the performance? Is it possible or necessary to understand the performance based on what is created through it?
Open to all artists worldwide. Work is limited in size to no more than 1x1x1 meter.
