Live Stage: Positions by Public Movement [us NYC]

[Public Movement, 2010. Performance documentation: The Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon] Positions by Public Movement: (1) November 4, 2011; 1:00 pm :: Washington Square Park :: (2) November 6; 1:00 pm :: Union Square South, New York City.

This November, the action and research group Public Movement will present Positions, a choreographed demonstration that invites people to take a stand on any number of urgent issues. Presented in Warsaw, Holon, Bat-Yam, Eindhoven, Heidelberg, Stockholm, and now New York, the Movement invites the public to embody their preferences, aspirations, and beliefs — manifesting political and philosophical ideas as physical positions in Washington Square Park and Union Square South. This will be Public Movement’s first presentation in the United States.

In February 2011, Public Movement leader Dana Yahalomi began her research toward a project for New York, meeting with artists, historians, urban planners, memorial designers, politicians, government officials, and NYPD officers. The residency continues from January–April 2012, during which time she will initiate bi-weekly salons as part of the 2012 New Museum Triennial, “The Generational,” and will culminate in a newly commissioned action for New York City in April 2012, details to follow.

Public Movement is a performative research body that investigates and stages political actions in public spaces. The Movement explores the political and aesthetic possibilities that reside in a group of people acting together. It studies and creates public choreographies, forms of social order, and overt and covert rituals. Public Movement was founded in November 2006 and was led by Omer Krieger and Dana Yahalomi until August 2011, when Yahalomi became the sole group leader.

Presented by the New Museum and Artis Contemporary Israeli Art Fund

About the New Museum

The New Museum is the only museum in New York City exclusively devoted to contemporary art. Founded in 1977, the New Museum was conceived as a center for exhibitions, information, and documentation about living artists from around the world. >From its beginnings as a one-room office on Hudson Street to the inauguration of its first freestanding, dedicated building on the Bowery designed by SANAA in 2007, the New Museum continues to be a place of ongoing experimentation and a hub of new art and new ideas.

Public Movement’s participation in the 2012 Generational is co-presented by the New Museum and Artis Contemporary Israeli Art Fund.

“The Generational” is made possible by a generous grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Support for the accompanying publications is made possible by the J. McSweeney and G. Mills Publications Fund at the New Museum, and a grant from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation.
