dfb gallery presents
PROTOCEPTIVE RESPONSES curated by PANOPLY PERFORMANCE LABORATORY
SAT 11.10.12 @ 9PM
five BROOKLYN artists (with three working in collaboration) stimulate physical responses, crossing the wires between senses, blowing out divisions between sound, smell, disgust, delight, and constructing inter-sensual networks of interpretable meaning.
PANOPLY PERFORMANCE LABORATORY (PPL) is a performance collective based in BROOKLYN, a project space/gallery, and curatorial entity. curation of group and alternative-form exhibitions, organization of conferences and platforms for critical debate, and the creation of collaborative performances form the tri-fold core of PPL’s practices. In addition to being part of PPL, IVY CASTELLANOS is a sculptor and performance artist who directs IV SOLDIERS GALLERY in BUSHWICK, ANYA LIFTIG is a performance artist who has performed all over the world and has curated at CENTER for PERFORMANCE RESEARCH and elsewhere, ESTHER NEFF and BRIAN MCCORKLE perform as a duo, create large-scale “operas” as the founders of PPL, and VALERIE KUEHNE is a cellist, curator, and performance artist who has also played and performed worldwide and curated hundreds of projects and shows. PPL is currently on its first domestic tour as a collective, our tour last year took us to MPA-B in BERLIN.
SAT 11.10.12 at MDW fair from 2-6 PM, PANOPLY PERFORMANCE LABORATORY, hosts PERFORMANCY FORUM – a program of six artists (ANYIA LIFTIG, BRIAN MCCORKLE, ESTHER NEFF, VALERIE KUEHNE, IVY CASTELLANOS and GERALDO MERCADO) will create event-specific interactive works for the fair.
