Flag New York City
Opening Friday November 1st, Performa 13, New York City
Flag by Magnhild Øen Nordahl, part of Flag Bergen, 2012.
Entrée is proud to be part of Performa 13 and Pavilions Without Walls, to present a new edition of our flag project. We have invited new artists to each make a statement with their own flags, which will be flown in various locations around New York City during the course of the biennial, November 1- 24. While the project addresses one of the biennial’s themes this year— citizenship —it also asks key questions about identity and nationality. Flags are strong symbols of power used both in warfare and celebration, with many rituals connected them. The symbolic value in raising or burning a flag is universal, and the use of colors and symbols in flags has a long history, studied in the field of vexillology. The artists involved in the project take on these concerns when exploring the flag as a medium, whilst pursuing the themes of their own work. See earlier editions of the project here and here in 2014 we continue with Flag Stavanger for Kunsthall Stavanger, where a new flag will be shown each week.
Founded by RoseLee Goldberg in 2004, Performa is the leading organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of twentieth-century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century. Performa launched New York’s first performance biennial in 2005. New to this year is Pavilions Without Walls, a new Performa initiative modeled on the idea of the Venice Bienniale's pavilions, created to forge strong partnerships between New York and countries around the world, allowing Performa to foster deeper levels of cultural and artistic exchange. The strategy of the inaugural year's Norwegian Pavilion is specifically to highlight cultural producers in Norway and present some of the country's most outstanding artists.
