IMA alum Hector Canonge launches TRACE-ABLE in Queens
Public Performance Art Intervention Series
April – June, 2011
Manuel de Dios Unanue Triangle Park
83rd Street at Roosevelt Avenue
Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC.
TRACE-ABLE is a long-term project initiated by artist Hector Canonge. In collaboration with invited artists, Lawrence Graham-Brown and Antonio Ortuño, the monthly public performance art interventions take place (April through June, 2011) at Manuel de Dios Unanue Triangle Park in Jackson Heights, Queens. The project consists of covering the park’s side walks with a large canvas where the artists perform choreographed tasks, engage the public, and walk barefoot on the canvas leaving footprints to raise awareness about present issues affecting New York City. Upon the completion of the three performances, the 100 ft. painted canvas, ephemera obtained from the events, and new works (multimedia installations, photography, and video) created by the artists around the different themes explored in TRACE-ABLE, will go on display in the exhibition TRACES to open in the Fall 2011.
