In this workshop, participants will examine the foundations of working in performance art. We will explore fundamentals such as strategies for working in real time, building relationships with audience and space, and techniques for documenting/archiving ephemeral works. Through the presentation of documents from experiential artworks, both historic and contemporary, participants learn about the current climate for artists working in this medium internationally. Schaefer and Fryer will present their own individual works, collaborative works, and works from The Present Tense Archive. In line with their curatorial mission, the works presented in this workshop will include a range of artists at various stages in their careers working all over the world. In this workshop, participants will engage in exercises that investigate how to use time, space, context, and symbolic action in their art practices. We will explore methods for witnessing live artworks, and how to build body awareness and presence.
