Movement Research Studies Project in Collaboration with the Not Festival: Public Criticism at the Greenspan Center. October 5 2011.
Participants in this informal discussion first watched a piece created by a group of international artists during a twenty-four hour creative residency hosted by the Not Festival. Using this piece made by Rudi Cole, My Lindblad, Kasumi Hinouch and Gwendolyn Nieuwenhuize as a starting point, participants then discussed the importance of social media for the transformation of Criticism, in particular how the internet has shifted the cultural authority of traditional critical opinion.
This event was part of the Not Festival: On horns, hair, hens, haze, and other (Orgi)anics things, organized by Luis Lara Malvecías. The participants in this Not Festival Studies Project events included artists from different cultural backgrounds who live and work in New York as well as guest artists from abroad.
Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances, and/or other formats that focus on provocative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersection of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.
