Tameka Norris: Untitled, 2012 and Senga Nengudi: 2 performances: RSVP, 1976 and RSVP, 197677
Tameka Norris creates a painting live in The Studio Museum in Harlem galleries. Norris cuts her tongue with the single stroke of a knife blade and drags it deliberately along the gallery wall, replacing brush and paint with her mouth and bodily fluids. Tameka Norris's untitled performance tests not only the artist's ability to tolerate pain but also the audience's ability to bear witness to pain.
Senga Nengudi's "RSVP" series was originally made in Los Angeles in the 1970s. Made of pantyhose and attached to the wall, the works were originally activated by artist Maren Hassinger who moved through the composition and explored the materiality of this flexible yet restrictive material. The sculptures will be activated by three contemporary dancers.
