RAPID PULSE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART FESTIVAL is an intense whirlwind of live performance art, videos, artist talks, workshops, and panel discussions that takes place in the Noble Square neighborhood through eight days of performance art in June as artists from around the world do what they do best. Taking place two weekends: THURSDAY through SUNDAY 04-07 and 11-14 JUNE, the fourth edition of RAPID PULSE will exhibit live art in the main gallery, durational performances in the storefront windows, works outside the gallery context, a video series, artist talks, panel discussions, workshops, and social events. Spilling over to other venues in the neighborhood, RAPID PULSE embraces the local and global simultaneously.
