Elbow Room, PE V: NYC Makeup and Wakeup #3
Wednesday, April 8, 2020
NYC Makeup and Wakeup # 3 by David Mramor is the third session of a series of performances produced for Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf that are intuitively building and growing along technological limitations, repetitions, and the current state of quarantine and self isolation – where every day seems the same, just a little different. NYC Makeup and Wakeup #1 took place unannounced on Wednesday March 25, 2020, NYC Makeup and Wakeup #2 on Sunday, March 29, 2020, both streamed live on the Instagram account of Kunstverein Düsseldorf.
These performances inaugurate a series of intermittent and repetitive events during the closure of the Kunstverein due to COVID-19 to be developed in close dialog with artists and producers we are currently, were recently and will be working with. Upcoming events include contributions by artists Dorota Gawęda & Eglė Kulbokaitė, Lena Willikens & Sarah Szczesny, curator and art historian Mi You, and poet and philosopher Daniel Falb, among others. Furthermore will contributions to be produced in relation to the Kunstverein’s archive, its publications and its new, soon to be released website.
