Interstices of History: A Timeline of Body  Art and Performance

On the 2nd of March open society Georgia foundation presents Angela Harutynyan’s artist talk: Interstices of History: A Timeline of Body Art and Performance.
In her presentation Angela Harutyunyan will refer to a collaborative research project conducted with Joanna Sokolowska, Tevz Logar, Vesna Madzoski, Vardan Azatyan and Eszter Lazar and entitled ‘A Timeline of Performance and Body art Practices from Eastern Europe and Former USSR’. This project epitomizes the larger methodological and art historiographical concerns that inform Angela Harutyunyan’s work.

It is a collaborative publication with several art curators and historians facilitated by her. It constitutes a methodological narrative as well as political and artistic timelines encompassing the period between 1949-2007. In this project, the two main areas of Angela Harutyunyan’s practice - art history research and curating - intersect: art history writing comes out as a mode of curating, and curating appears as a historically grounded practice. Angela Harutyunyan is an art historian and curator. In 2009-2010 she was Assistant Professor and Art Program director at the American University in Cairo. She has published internationally on issues related to post-Soviet art and culture, and specifically, contemporary art in Armenia. She has curated several shows such as Public_Media_Space (ACCEA, Yerevan, 2004) , Coming to You Not to Be With You (WOW, Yerevan, Armenia, 2008), Accretions (Skuc Gallery, Ljubljana, Slovenia, 2010) and Accretions II (Museum of Contemporary Art, Lodz, Poland).
Since 2006 she is the co-organizer of the Summer Seminars for Art Curators in Yerevan and the bi-annual Program of Critical and Curatorial Studies within AICA-Armenia. She has co-edited several international anthologies, including Public Spheres After Socialism (2008, with Malcolm Miles and Katheryn Horschelmann) and The Book of St. Ejneb: Manual for Treason with Aras Ozgun for the 10th Sharjah Art Biennial in 2011.
