Professor Allison Smith’s Writings Reimagined as an Exhibition at BAM
In Terms of Performance—co-edited by Paula Marincola of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage and Shannon Jackson of UC Berkeley—is an online resource of intersecting essays and interviews from artists, curators, presenters, and scholars reflecting on the relationship between visual art, theater, choreography, and performance art. For this exhibition, IToP is reimagined as an installation for visitors, while selections from the Leon Levy BAM Digital Archive—images, text, video, and audio documentation—illuminate and extend key points from IToP’s web of reference. In tandem, these living resources capture the evolving discourse around the contested terms and traditions of interdisciplinary work.
Professor Smith wrote entries on Installation and Prop for the online resource. The exhibition is on view at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) March 6 – May 8.
