QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development is pleased to present ITINERANT, the annual festival for Contemporary Performance Art initiated by artist, Hector Canonge in Queens in 2011. This year’s festival consists a citywide program to be presented in collaboration with galleries, artist-run spaces and public institutions in the five boroughs that make up the City of New Yok City. ITINERANT 2012 will focus on live performative works that treat notions of intimacy, self-reflection, and introspection. Artists working in performance art were selected to participate from an open call that attracted more than 175 local, national and international submissions. Forty five artists will present new and existing works exploring the program’s theme over a period of five weeks starting at the end of March.
