May Issue of Artforum

This month in Artforum: “The Next Act: Issues in Contemporary Performance.” On the occasion of major New York exhibitions of artists Marina Abramovic and Tino Sehgal at the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Artforum asked art historians Carrie Lambert-Beatty and Caroline A. Jones, as well as artist Joe Scanlan, to reflect on this striking pairing of ephemeral actions and established institutions—all while taking stock of performance in the public sphere.

“More interesting than whether reenactments are art-historically correct is what they are asked to do—whether they close down or open up the potentiality of performance.” —Carrie Lambert-Beatty
