The panel will explore issues related to collecting, exhibiting, and conserving performance-based artworks, using the work of the internationally acclaimed artist duo Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla as a set of case studies. The Indianapolis Museum of Art was selected to present the work of the Puerto Rico-based artist collaborative Allora & Calzadilla at the U.S. Pavilion for the 2011 Venice Biennale. This panel will provide a rare opportunity for AIC’s members to hear presentations and discussions from the commissioning curator, the principal performer of the work Body in Flight (Delta), and a conservator who has worked on another work by the duo in MoMA’s collection, Stop, Repair, Prepare. Body in Flight (Delta) will be performed at the AIC Opening Reception.

Lisa Freiman, IMA senior curator and chair of the Department of Contemporary Art, will discuss her role and experiences commissioning the artwork, Body in Flight (Delta). She will also briefly discuss the conservation efforts underway to represent the work over the long term.

Sadie Wilhelmi, performance artist/dancer, will discuss her role in working with the choreographer to create the performance and then discuss the way in which the performance has been translated and documented to allow for other, less experienced performers to complete.
