Conversation with Adrienne Edwards and resident artists

Location One Performance Program Public Workshop Fall/Winter 2011
We invite you to join us: Monthly workshops, presided over by Jovana
Stokic, Location One’s curator of Performance Art, invite guest
artists, critics and curators to work with the community of
artists-in-residence at Location One. They provide a lively
interaction and often suggest projects or collaborations that might be
explored for presentation at the gallery. This month the topic
addressed will be Trace of Performance: Between Document and Artwork
; the guest will be Adrienne N. Edwards.
Adrienne N. Edwards has a thriving intellectual practice focused on
black conceptual and avant-garde performance. Adrienne has lectured
and taught courses on arts administration at a number of colleges and
universities, and curated and produced a range of exhibitions and
performances. She works with Performa, the visual art performance
biennial. Adrienne was most
recently Vice President at the Apollo Theater Foundation. Prior to her work at the Apollo,
Adrienne served as Director of Foundation & Government Relations at
the Whitney Museum of American Art, as a Program Associate at the Pew
Charitable Trusts in the Culture Program, and as an Associate Program
Officer at JP Morgan in Philanthropic Services.
Location One is extremely grateful to The NY State Council on the Arts, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and Location One’s International Committee for making this event possible.
