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
