As the third installment in the PERFORMAs NOT FOR SALE series, NOT FOR SALE: New Media and Sound will offer an in depth view into contemporary developments in performance. In conjunction with New York Universitys Department of Art and Art Professions and Humanities Council, PERFORMA presents NOT FOR SALE: New Media and Sound as a dynamic continuation of the discussion on performance and its relationship to the museum, gallery, and collector, which has begun last April with Not for Sale: Conserving and Collecting Ephemeral Artwork in the 21st Century. Panelists Chrissie Iles, Robert Storr and Joan Jonas elaborated on the paradox of capturing radical and ephemeral ideas for historical record as well as a broader debate regarding how museums and galleries conserve this work. In November, Not For Sale: Artists View featured panelist Marina Abramovic, Tania Bruguera, Klaus Ottmann, and Debra Singer, who actively discussed the changing role of the modern museum as lively cultural center shaping artists ideas about performance.
