Artspace kicks off its 30th anniversary during the 18th Annual City-Wide Open Studios. The entire community is invited to celebrate on October 29, at the New Haven Museum.
To celebrate the launch, Artspace will present a selection of ephemera, photographs, and videos from its archive dating back to its founding. The show is organized by Sarah Fritchey, Artspace Curator, and staff, and will remain on display through November 4 in the New Haven Museum’s rotunda. Eminent Cuban performance artist and current Yale World Fellow, Tania Bruguera, will present Receiving Line, an original performance at 8:15pm, developed in collaboration with 8 socially-engaged artists based in New Haven.
Receiving Line is a performance collaboration between Cuban artist Tania Bruguera, 8 local artists interested in social practice, and 100+ clients of Columbus House Homeless shelter which rethinks the heartfelt handshake as an act of radical hospitality. Artists: Lani Asuncion, Ifeanyi Awachie, John Edmonds, Allison Irene Hornak, David Livingston, Jason Noushin, Nick Pfaff, and Petra Szilagyi.
