Thinking Performance at the Guggenheim
Thursday, June 17 @ 8�pm

Five years after the groundbreaking (Re)Presenting Performance symposium, held at the Guggenheim Museum in April 2005, artists, curators, and theorists gather to discuss issues manifested in recent performance-based work mounted at the Guggenheim. Referencing topics pertaining to site specificity, live action, the place of memory, and the role of the document, these focused presentations provide an opportunity to think deeply about specific practices in contemporary art. As part of the symposium, and on the occasion of the exhibition Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance, Joan Jonas will re-present her seminal 1969 performance Mirror Piece I, newly expanded specifically for the Guggenheim’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda.

Featured speakers include: Marina Abramović, Claire Bishop, Jennifer Blessing, Chrissie Iles, Joan Jonas, Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Susan Philipsz, Rebecca Schneider, Nancy Spector, and Nat Trotman.

Thursday, June 17, 8 pm — Mirror Piece I: Reconfigured by Joan Jonas followed by a post-performance conversation with Chrissie Iles.
Friday, June 18, 2 pm — Symposium

$30, $20 members, $10 students (each ticket includes admission to the performance and the symposium)
Box Office: 212 423 3587
