Material by Alex Tatarsky: Open Rehearsal at the Whitney Museum

July 19, 6 pm10 pm.
Free with museum admission

A trained clown, Alex Tatarsky’s performances are highly responsive to venue and audience. They blur disciplinary categories as they careen from scripted sequences to unfettered improvisation. As part of the performance program organized by guest curator Taja Cheek for Whitney Biennial 2024: Even Better Than the Real Thing, Tatarsky considers the multiple meanings of the word “material,” as both the physical substances that comprise an object and the information that becomes a performance. Prompted by an array of items gathered from their clown closet, the garbage, and the audience, they will generate scores and screeds guided by an attempt to follow associative logic and find pleasure amidst mess and failure.
