Yellow Fish // Epic Durational Performance Festival is the only festival dedicated to durational performance. From July 8th to August 5th 2015, Yellow Fish // Epic Durational Performance Festival will take over Seattle (USA). Yellow Fish aims to present durational performances lasting a minimum of an hour and a maximum of 48 hours. Artists from all over the world have been invited to perform at all moments of day and night. In its third year, the festival will have a monthlong run, made possible thanks to newly-created partnerships with Northwest Film Forum, Velocity Dance Center, Studio Current and New Tomorrow. Artifacts from all of the performances will accumulate at the Hedreen Gallery, where most of the festival’s events will take place.
As the festival has grown exponentially since the two years of its creation, the costs have also increased. This year we were unable to receive any of the funding we had received in the prior editions. The major sponsor for the Hedreen Gallery has yet to reconfirm their bi-annual gift and grants that we received in the past are in 12 months cycles, making it impossible for us to apply again this year. Thus, we are inviting you, our community, to support this unique festival, that has already hosted and nurished so many artists and people (30+). While fostering the creation of new experimental art.
“Durational performance is a form through which TIME is manifested in its original (natural) purity and brought to the forefront as pivotal to the experience. The performance is designed so that time, as the primary theme of the piece, physically affects and mentally transforms the performer, the audience, and the space” - E. Pujol
Thank you for making this possible. Yellow Fish // Epic Durational Performance Festival is a unique event that can continue only with support from you. Your donation supports the growth and exploration of talented and innovative performers; and it inspires artists, and listeners to challenge the boundaries of time.

9 am - 4 pm
Montserrat College of Art
23 Essex St.Beverly, MA 01915
In this week-long workshop, students will learn about the complexities of creating and witnessing durational performance art. What happens when a performance extends into hours, days, weeks, or even years? How do these works conceptually evolve over time and what effect does a lengthened duration have on the artist’s body? In this workshop, students will learn various strategies used by contemporary artists working in this way. Students will heighten their body awareness to increase physical and mental endurance. We will also explore various documentation techniques that are unique to this method of working. At the end of the workshop, students will present durational works that will be open to the public.
Price: $715 Early Bird | $795 After April 10(available as a credit* or non-credit course | open to the public)

Longva + Carpenter reveal their Hunger
Tuesday, June 7, 2011 • 4 – 9pm

Collaborative team Longva + Carpenter presentsHunger, a new durational performance. Hunger uses the familiarity of the dinner table to isolate and augment the subtext of small talk between intimate pairs. Two women sit motionless, looking at each other from across a bare table. The women are physically connected by a banded form; their arms are linked in a single tube, as if they are wearing one piece of clothing. The knitted band suggests warmth and coziness, but also becomes a shared straitjacket, confining each to the unrelenting mirroring of the other. In this heightened visual metaphor, each woman has only a single sentence to offer. One is desperate for attention and approval (“Is it good?”), the other is withholding (“If I don’t say anything, it’s good”). Each woman is therefore isolated in her proximity to the other. Exploring the myriad relationships between two people: lovers, parent/child, teacher/student, friends, colleagues, clerk/client, Hunger considers all the ways we cannot communicate, but long to connect.

I recently uploaded some images from an exhibit that I curated called "Accumulation" in 2009. The concept was built around the idea that the Gallery evolved over the duration of 1 month by the creative action of 6 artists. Each artist was challenged to leave behind their own remnants and work with the remnants that were left behind by others. I am planning to curate several phases of this exhibition. If anyone is interested in having their work considered, let me know.
