Continuum Performance Art workshop: "Unframed: Performance Art and the Image"

Courtesy of the artist

Images, either previously understood or based on visions or ideas, play a crucial role in creative production. Stemming from the visual arts, the process of realizing performance art doesn't exist outside of this scope. Un-framed: Performance Art and the Image will be an intensive, hands-on workshop based in theory and practice, entailing readings, exercises and discussions that will culminate in the creation of a new performance-based art work from each participant.

Participants will be encouraged to approach performance art through the language of sculpture, drawing and photography to better examine a nexus of time, space, the body and creation of images. Additionally, guests will consider the role of lens-based documentation in live visual performance art and its effects on temporality.

Facilitator Ryan Hawk is a visual artist, curator and arts organizer who focuses in performance, video, sculpture and drawing. Hawk's work has been shown in several venues throughout New York, Boston, exhibited at Chicago's Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival, Select Industries at Miami Basel 2012 and several international performance art festivals.

Limited to 15 participants. To reserve a spot, please email ryan.hawk@smfa.edu. Proceeds will benefit Lone Star Explosion 2014, Houston International Performance Art Biennale.
