Cara Rose DeFabio put together a map of art spaces, focusing on performance, that are no longer with us. She is inviting people to add others that might be missing.
The map was created as part of a dramaturgy for The Dance that Documents Itself, opening tonight at CounterPulse and running through the 14th.

The exhibition Children explores the unique behaviors within two separate art practices. Much like behavioral studies developed through observations of a child’s growth, the exhibition exposes the unique approaches within Ito and Lux’s practices which have been sculpted through their individual development as artists.

Ito uses readymade objects and images as preexisting structures in his practice for starting points of new work, while Lux uses his own stylized images and objects as preexisting structures for the formation of new work.
