Helen Stoilas writes in The Art Newspaper how more and more museums are focusing on performance, particularly dance, in their programming to revitalize the experience of their visitors.
Stoilas quotes PS1 associate curator Jenny Schlenzka on the significance of this trend: “We’re living in times when the object is less important. The museum is a place where these changes are being negotiated. The ephemeral is becoming much more important.”
What do you think about this trend? How do the principles of slow looking relate to art that is time-based or performed live? We would love to hear your thoughts.
