Live Arts Bard Performance Exhibition The technologies of surveillance have redefined the nature of contemporary human life and society. In our interactions with government, law enforcement, corporations, and one another, we live in a constant state of watching and being watched—with varying degrees of visibility and consciousness.
The second Live Arts Bard Biennial explores the vast implications of life in a state of surveillance, and the impact of that reality on security, democracy, ethics, creativity, and citizenship. The four-day event features:
Big Art Group Opacity (preview performances)
Annie Dorsen The Great Outdoors (preview performances)
Hasan Elahi Retina (LAB commission)
Michelle Ellsworth The Rehearsal Artist (LAB commission/world premiere)
Claudia Rankine, Will Rawls, John Lucas, Homi K. Bhabha What Remains (LAB commission/world premiere)
