Description

Export Happenings

Next Wave presents Export Happenings, an evening of reperformance from the stages and streets of 1960s and 70s New York, by artists Emile Zile, Angela Goh and The Band Presents. Three performances will mine and reinterpret an era that upturned our understanding of what performance art is, where it can be shown and who can perform it.

In the spirit of do-it-yourself, artists and audiences are invited to intervene into the documents, archives and memories of pioneering art movements through Fluxus magazines, concerts and manifestos; video art; performance scores and instruction kits. Turn your minds on for an evening of ready-made performance; a tribute to the ghosts of a radical, rebellious and amusing era of performance history.

This event will take place on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We offer our respect to the Elders of these traditional lands and, through them, to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
