BAX is delighted to host The EmergeLAB@BAX which is comprised of alum of the EmergeNYC program at the Hemispheric Institute for Performance and Politics. The goal of the LAB is to provide a non-curated, non-hierarchical space for artistic development, where the artists determine their own frameworks and processes for experimentation and growth.
Building upon both the skills and community generated in EmergeNYC, the LAB will deepen the conversation on the relationship between art & activism while forming new modes of practice in a format that balances the collective and the individual.
Over 10 months, artists will meet bi-monthly to workshop their pieces together, and once a month in an open studio format for shared rehearsal time. The LAB will culminate a shared showcase performance in October 2014.
