Venue:Open call for Performance Art Week, 2016

Performance Art Week 2016 will attempt to have a comprehensive look on the role of performance art in contemporary Bangladesh. We will investigate the multiple complexities of this ephemeral medium through discussions, performances and exhibitions.

The event aims to find out nuances of Performance Art by exploring answers of such questions:

  • What role does it play in the political and cultural activism as opposed to white-cube space?
  • How do artists materialize the non-material art?
  • How does this medium contribute to the evolution of new languages?

We are calling on performance artists to apply with the following

A concept note or proposal (300 words max)| A short bio (150 words max)| Documentation of 3 past works (video/audio links, photos total 5mb, etc)
