September 4, 2013
N-7

The NYU Tisch School of the Arts department of Photography & Imaging, in collaboration with NYU’s Grey Art Gallery, will present More Than Documentation: Photography and Performance on Wednesday, September 25 from 6:30-8:30pm in the Rosenthal Pavilion at the Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, 10th Floor. This event is free and open to the public.

This panel discussion will bring together an array of artists—working in the visual arts, music, theater, education, and political and community activism—to examine connections between performance art and participatory images. Addressing the integral role of such images in their work, speakers will highlight the notion of radical performance art and examine how it has shaped the contemporary art landscape. Moderated by NYU Tisch professors Karen Finley, Arts Professor of Art and Public Policy, and Deborah Willis, University Professor and Chair of Photography and Imaging, the panel will also feature Derrick Adams, Holly Bass, Clifford Owens, Xaviera Simmons, and Danny Tisdale.

This event is offered in conjunction with Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art, on view at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery, 100 Washington Square East, September 10-December 7, 2013. Media is invited to attend the panel discussion on Wednesday, September 25th from 6:30-8:30pm. For more information on the exhibition, including a complete program roster, please visit http://www.nyu.edu/greyart.

The Department of Photography & Imaging is an intensive four-year BFA program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students work in all modes of analog, digital, and multimedia photo-based image making, exploring photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression.
