November 15, 2013

Performance artist and sculptor Marianne Vitale (BFA 1996 Film and Video) has been commissioned to present The Missing Book of Spurs at Performa 13. vitale200Taking place in Long Island City at 8:00pm each night from November 20 –23 (click here for more info), Vitale’s new work continues her exploration of frontier history and will incorporate a multistory wood structure, which will be activated by live performances. From the Performa 13 website: “Twisting idiosyncratic forms from American homesteading into surprising visual juxtapositions, Vitale’s structures will be the physical set for a string of hallucinatory vignettes depicting rattlesnake-bitten ranchers, wisecracking astrologers and burlesque movers and shakers.” For more information, click here.
