From July 26 through 29, 2012.
The first Miami Performance International Festival will be a four-day series of events taking place in Downtown Miami, the Miami Design District and Miami Beach. The event is organized by Edge Zones Projects and curated by Charo Oquet , Cristy Alamaida and Tori Arpad-Cotta.
The live art exhibition project seeks to reflect the varied approaches and underscore the wide spectrum of concerns of artistic practices and styles while surveying the contemporary global artistic strategies and conceptual frameworks where these works are put into play. M/P’12 will explore and study the tendencies of Performance Art and Installations, showcasing works of over 32 international and local artists. The festival draws upon the rich local and international cultural landscape to present leading contemporary artists of performance and installation art who will exhibit alongside, both established and emerging performance artists selected from around the world.
A lively dialogue between live art practice and its documentation will occur through an comprehensive exhibition of performance documentation in photography, installation and video, while durational and site-reactive live performances will be presented to the public in a participatory and interactive discourse during the four day program The festival which is free to the general public will include workshops, lectures, artist talks, or other forms of discourse. The first edition of the festival will focus on the topic “Art of Uncertainty”.
