Art21 is thrilled to announce our latest program, The Present Perfect with Art21, featuring Art21 artists Oliver Herring and Laurie Simmons in conversation with Robert MacNeil. It takes place Wednesday, June 23, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
The Present Perfect with Art21, co-presented with PBS and the 92YTribeca, is a live-streamed interactive event about the role of collaboration and performance in contemporary art and everyday life. Herring and Simmons will explore how elements of performance inform their work and how they incorporate media — from film and video to dance, fashion, and photography — in their creative processes and collaborations.
The in-person portion takes place at the 92YTribeca in New York City. Tickets are free and open to the public, but advance registration is encouraged. RSVP online at the 92YTribeca website or by phone at the 92YTribeca Box Office, 212-601-1000. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; event begins at 8 p.m. sharp.
Online, tune in to PBS.org at 8pm EST and join the online conversation via Facebook, Twitter, and more!
The Present Perfect features an interactive creative project by Oliver Herring that invites you to participate before and during the program. Then watch film work by Laurie Simmons and a sneak preview of the new film in which she stars, Tiny Furniture. Whether in-person or online, we encourage you to submit questions, comments, and your own media for the artists to respond to during the event.
