Coming Together: Artist and curator talks and discussion
The New Performance Turku Biennale artists and visiting curators come together to discuss their practices. The session is moderated by Jennie Klein.

The participants will share their thoughts on how performance is crafted as a cohesive practice, how does live art “come together”, for such diverse artistic processes? What are the stakes and the challenges faced on the way? And what are the motives that drive artists and curators forward? The panel will discuss collaborative formats, radical practices, and unexpected artistic journeys.

Participating biennale artists Every House Has a Door (Matthew Goulish & Linn Hixon), Essi Kausalainen, Mark Pozlep, Jamal Gerald, Sajan Mani and Exchange Live Art (Ana Matey & Isabel Leon). Participating curators Christiana Galanopoulou and New Performance Turku Biennale’s curators Leena Kela & Maria Villa Largacha. The discussion will be moderated by performance art researcher Jennie Klein (Associate Professor of Contemporary Art History at Ohio University, USA).
