This series is linked to the Whitney's exhibit exploring performance art in NY in the 1970s

Currently on display at the Whitney Museum of American Art through February 2, RITUALS OF RENTED ISLAND: OBJECT THEATER, LOFT PERFORMANCE, AND THE NEW PSYCHODRAMA - MANHATTAN 1970-1980 is an absorbing exhibition focused on a number of prime performance artists who populated Lower Manhattan in the 1970s. Their shows were staged in lofts, storefronts, artist spaces, music clubs, and venues like The Kitchen and Anthology in our early SoHo days. This linked screening series includes videos, films, and documentation from artists of the era and features many pieces not on view in the exhibit.

In addition to the artists and works in these 13 shows, selections of recently preserved short films by performance artist Stuart Sherman will be screened at the beginning of various programs.

Special thanks to the Whitney Museum of American Art, Jay Sanders, J. Hoberman, Greta Hartenstein, Brent Philips (Fales Library & Special Collections, NYU), and Bill Seery (Mercer Media).

Please note: for all screenings in this series, $6 AFA member tickets will be extended to members of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
