Summer Think Tank: Spotlight on Performance Art

As a highlight of our inaugural Summer Think Tank: _______American 2023 The Lunder Institute for American Art is pleased to welcome a cohort of six performance artists: Ayana Evans, Tsedaye Makonnen, Dominique Duroseau, Nyugen Smith, M. Lamar, and Eleanor Kipping.

Performance Art takes center stage in contemporary art with many influential Black artists leading the charge, and we are excited to be in conversation with several of these groundbreaking artists over the next few weeks.

With the guidance, advisement, and support of pioneer and influential artist, Lorraine O’Grady, and her trusted colleague and collaborator, artist Sur Rodney, our invited artists will workshop and incubate a performance piece using one of O’Grady’s never before published or shared scores.

This is a very special moment for the Lunder Institute and we can’t wait to be a part of what’s developed and workshopped by the performance artists at the Greene Block + Studios and to see what directions it will lead to beyond our SummerThinkTank. Our sincere gratitude to Lorraine O’Grady and Sur Rodney for their generosity.
