100 Years (version #2, ps1, nov 2009)

This exhibition will gather important happenings, actions, moments, and gestures to outline a history of performance art that is still largely unknown. Organized by P.S.1 and Performa, a non-profit interdisciplinary arts organization committed to presenting and researching performance art, 100 Years will then travel to other venues, with content varying and developing over time.

Art Exhibition previously on at MoMA PS1 in United States.

For each version, works can be added to or detracted from, or include a greater local emphasis, depending on where the exhibition takes place.

This collaborative exhibition is a product of discussions between both institutions and is presented on the occasion of Performa 09, the third visual art performance biennial happening November 1-22, 2009. Performa 09 is inspired by the 100 years that have passed since The Futurist Manifesto was published in 1909. Last February, Performa hosted a Futurist banquet to acknowledge this momentous anniversary.

Organized by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and Performa. The exhibition is curated by Klaus Biesenbach, P.S.1 Chief Curatorial Advisor and MoMA Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art; and RoseLee Goldberg, Performa Director and Curator.

The exhibition is made possible by the Annual Exhibition Fund of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center with generous support from Julia Stoschek Foundation.
