__________
Brooklyn-Norte Maar presents its most ambitious collaborative event to date! The Brooklyn Performance Combine is a mashup of poets, painters, and performers at the Brooklyn Museum on November 1 from 7-9pm. The event coincides with the museum’s Target Free Saturdays and responds to the museum’s exhibition Crossing Brooklyn: Bushwick, Bed-Stuy and Beyond. The event is free.

Not so unlike the historic Theater Event #1 that took place at Black Mountain College during the summer of 1952, and Norte Maar’s own End of the World performance at English Kills, The Brooklyn Performance Combine Event unites all art forms in a fusion of poetry, sound, dance, and performance in a single cohesive 120-minute event. It will be epic.

A timer will start the countdown for the performance. Each artist will be programmed to begin and end at a time designated through chance operations within the 120-minute interval. At times a poet will be reading while a sound artist is performing. A dancer will enter, perform and depart. Sounds will overlap. There will be silence. Every aspect of the performance will be unrehearsed, live, spontaneous, and uninterrupted. Audiences can come and go as the event clock ticks out of time.

About Beat Nite.
Beat Nite made its neighborhood debut in February 2009, featuring all of Bushwick’s alternative art spaces and galleries—at the time, only seven. The event grew into a biannual occurrence offering an awesome neighborhood-wide event that many have labeled “half art stroll, half bar crawl.” With over 50 galleries and alternative spaces now in Bushwick/Ridgewood, since 2012 a special guest curator has been invited to select just 10 spaces from the community’s many great offerings.

About Ben Sutton.
Ben Sutton is an art critic, journalist, and curator based in Park Slope. He is the Metro Editor at Hyperallergic, and his articles on public art, artist documentaries, the tedium of art fairs, James Franco’s obsession with Cindy Sherman, and other divisive issues been published there and by Artnet, The L Magazine, Modern Painters, Art+Auction, BKLYNR, and Brooklyn Magazine, among others. He has curated exhibitions at Field Projects, the Spring Break Art Show, the Gowanus Loft, and the Lower East Side Printshop.
