Under the equivocal rubric "Performance Capture," Ed Atkins will present an expansive new work explicitly concerned with how contemporary technologies of representation mediate our lives – to say nothing of our own willingness to be captured and rendered.

About

Corralling live bodies, animated surrogates, and departed performances, the gallery will act as both screening room and venue for performances and public programs. By ceding control to other authors in order to create multiple iterations of one work, the exhibition will ultimately act, according to Atkins, as "a document whose data is yet to be uncovered, let alone indexed."

This exhibition is made possible with support from LUMA Foundation, Thea Westreich Wagner & Ethan Wagner, Melanie Shorin & Greg S. Feldman, Robert Soros, Shane Akeroyd, Eleanor Cayre, Charlotte Feng Ford, Christen & Derek Wilson, Lonti Ebers, National Endowment for the Arts, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo.

"Performance Capture" is a continuation of a project begun at the Manchester International Festival 2015, curated by Alex Poots, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Ed Atkins.
