The last days of Performances Invisibles

Performances Invisibles (Invisible Performances) is the third solo exhibition by conceptual artist Steve Giasson.
It is realised as part of the ‘Micro Interventions in public space’-section from the
DARE-DARE Center of Dissemination of Multidisciplinary Art, in Montreal, Canada.
The project consists of 130 performances and is staggered over a full year:
from July 7, 2015 to July 7 2016.

Performances Invisibles first took the form of performative statements, ideas of works, recorded in writing.  Although they can stand on their own, they call and describe many minimal or enigmatic gestures. Often the statements are taken from everyday life or from the history of art. They can be placed in public or in private space.

The statements are published twice a week on performancesinvisibles.dare-dare.org (French, English and Spanish), and they are shared on the DARE-DARE’s Facebook page.

Steve Giasson activates the statements. The documents surrounding these activations are available on the website. Everybody is welcome to activate these performative statements at any time (also after July 7) and without prior authorization. If you do so, you are kindly requested to send any form of documentation. It will be added to the corresponding statements.

Unnoticed Art Festival #2

On June 24/25 2016 the 222lodge will organise a second festival for Unnoticed Live Art in an undisclosed Dutch city.
The Unnoticed Art Festival balances on the line between public and private. It shows artworks hiding in normality. The language, used to express the works, fits in the average social behaviour in public space and, because of that, remained unnoticed to bystanders.

Creating the concepts and executing the works are split. Artists send their concepts more or less as manuals. In the festival the chosen works  will be carried out by a group of (both experienced and unexperienced) volunteers.

The volunteers have a double roll. They are participants as well as audience. They are responsible for realising the performances in the best possible way and, doing that, they fully experience the works. In fact they become part of it. The public is not excluded in this way but it is actually embedded.

The location of the festival remains a secret. That way the passers-by are accidental and without knowledge of the occasion. They are unaware.
They have their own aims, their own occupations, their own thoughts.

You are very welcome to send your concept to 2ndfestival@unnoticedart.com.
The deadline is 1st of April 2016. 

The first Unnoticed Art Festival in 2014 showed works of:
Rafael Abreu Canedo (BRA), Sarah Boulton (GBR), Derek Dadian-Smith (USA), Craig Damrauer (USA), Dino Dinco ((USA), Mr. and Mrs Gray (NLD), Linda Hesh (USA), Hiroomi Horiuchi (JPN), David Horvitz (USA), Daan den Houter (NLD), Jeroen Jongeleen (NLD), Ienke Kastelein (NLD), Jonathon Keats (USA), Joke van Kerkwijk (NLD), Kees Koomen (NLD), Margreet Kramer (NLD), Gavin Krastin (ZAF), Frans van Lent (NLD), Steef van Lent (DEU), Gretta Louw (AUS), Lilla Magyari (HUN), Maria Martens (SAV), Andrew McNiven (GBR), Janet Meaney (AUS), Tim Miller (GBR), Marnik Neven (BEL), Joyce Overheul (NLD), Nico Parlevliet (NLD), Malin Peter (SWE), Jess Rose (GBR), Julie Rozman (USA), Roekoe M (NLD), Joshua Schwebel (CAN), Edwin Stolk (NLD), Topp & Dubio (NLD).
