Look out, Internet: The Present Perfect is here! We’re coming at you live from the 92YTribeca in New York City tonight, starting promptly at 8:00 p.m. EST. Tune in on PBS.org to watch the live stream and to join the discussion with other online viewers.
There will be conversation and there will be performance…and there will be participation from you!
Come prepared to have a conversation: Watch videos featuring Laurie Simmons and Oliver Herring beforehand, view recent work by Laurie, and catch up on audience-contributed performance projects as part of Oliver’s Three Day Weekend and The Present Perfect Weekend. Selections from the online conversation will be passed to moderator Robert MacNeil during the live event.
In addition to the in-browser chat room, we will also keep a Twitter back channel open during the event. Use #art21live on Twitter to discuss the event at the venue, on the go, or at home.
To keep the online discussion flowing, we’ve assembled a cast of moderators from across the country, including: Los Angeles-based Art21 Blog contributors, Catherine Wagley and Lily Simonson; St. Louis-based Art21 Blog Flash Points editor and Communications & Web Manager at The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, Rachel Craft; Washington, DC-based Online Arts Initiative Manager at PBS, Lauren Saks; and from the live audience in New York City, Art21 Manager of Education and Public Programs, Marc Mayer, and myself, Art21 Manager of Digital Media and Strategy, Jonathan Munar.
We at Art21 are excited to bring you this live interactive event, and we hope to see you online tonight!
