Group Art Performance
17 April 2015 at 20:00 (arrival 19:45)
at ARTos Foundation
ARTos Foundation and the Cyprus International Performance Art Society (CIPAS) collaborate for the realization of a series of group art performances within the framework of the 7th X-Dream Festival. The first group performance will take place on Friday, 17 April 2015 at 20:00, at ARTos Foundation and is co-organized by ARTos Foundation and CIPAS. A group performance will also take place during the 3rd Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) that will take place on the 20 and 21 June, at ARTos Foundation.
This group Art Performance is a performance work that is formed through ideas and practices from Performance Art and Fluxus, meaning that no rehearsal is taking place before and no repetition of the same performance happens afterwards. The idea of the group performance came out from the Performance Art workshop, by Christina Georgiou, that took place at ARTos Foundation in the previous year. The group performance consists of 6 participants; mainly visual artists but also artists from other artistic backgrounds who participated in the Performance Art workshop.
A few words about CIPAS:
The Cyprus International Performance Art Society (CIPAS) was founded in 2013 and is a registered NGO and a non-profit organization created for and dedicated to the field of Performance Art. Having its basis in Nicosia, Cyprus, this initiative brings together, supports and disseminates the work of performance artists from around the globe, through activities that take place in Cyprus throughout the year. At the same time, it endeavors to engage the public in this process and the artists in the local peculiarity.
CIPAS aims to offer a number of opportunities to artists while encouraging relationships with local, national and international networks. CIPAS is an attempt to create a group of people working for the realization of projects that focus on or involve Performance Art under the frame of collaboration and contribution. CIPAS also encourages the implementation of interdisciplinary projects that create possible interconnections between Performance Art and other artistic or scientific practices.
CIPAS has under its umbrella a number of activities: residency/ research programs, training/ educational programs/ workshops, exhibitions and the yearly Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF), which its 3rd realization will take place in June 2015.
