In Other News: Performance and Conversation | SculptureCenter

Thu, Nov 30, 2023, 7–9pm

RSVP here. 

Join SculptureCenter for a performance of Tania Pérez Córdova’s In Other News and a conversation with the artist and exhibition curator Humberto Moro.

 

Pérez Córdova’s In Other News (commissioned for her 2022 exhibition at Museo Tamayo, Mexico City) is a live reading presenting a continuous flow of recent world events, a collection of headlines rewritten to abstract from any specificity (names, spaces, times), resulting in a single line that has the tension of a story. The work serves as a review of the world outside of the gallery during the time of her exhibition. It functions as a backdrop to a collective experience which, as in most of Pérez Córdova’s work, describes an ongoing narrative that deviates and reconfigures into new forms as it unfolds. At the same time, the juxtaposition of events, almost unintentionally, evinces the contradictory nature of social and political events and their intersections across geographies and socio-political spheres. 

*This program was previously scheduled for Sat, Nov 4. It has been rescheduled for Thu, Nov 30, as reflected above. Tania Pérez Córdova’s new monograph will be available in SculptureCenter’s bookstore at a later date.
