Upcoming: Opening Tonight @ English Kills

August 16th, 2008 · No Comments

There’s a cool show called Maximum Perception: Contemporary Brooklyn Performance opening tonight at the English Kills Gallery in Bushwick. It runs through September 17. The opening reception is from 5PM-9PM.. Here’s a bit from the gallery:

English Kills Art Gallery is pleased to present Maximum Perception : Contemporary Brooklyn Performance, the first exhibition to cover the entire range of contemporary live art produced in Brooklyn. Featuring 30 artists producing over 20 newly commissioned performances, this exhibition thoroughly seeks to open and explore the crucial dialogue produced by these artists within Brooklyn and its artistic community. In addition to featuring traditional photo and video documentation, the exhibition seeks for the first time to create an entirely live environment for expression: at all open gallery hours, at least one performance will be taking place within the gallery. Within this goal, both Curators Dobill and Harding seek to substantiate and elevate the “live” aspect of the performance artists’ practice beyond the realm of “opening reception” and “special event” categories to the actuality of an available experience in a gallery setting.

English Kills is at 114 Forrest Street in Bushwick. More info at the gallery website.
