Cecilia Corrigan – Performance
Saturday, November 14th, 2015, 5 PM
La MaMa Galleria, 47 Great Jones Street
In conjunction with the exhibition Brad Greenwood: Star Maps at La MaMa Galleria, NYPAC presents a new one-off performance by artist Cecilia Corrigan as a response to Greenwood's work. The event is a continuation of Corrigan's recent genre-shifting performances: a unique blend of comedy, monologue, poetry, and, within the gallery context, a pseudo-tour of the exhibition that addresses and draws inspiration from Greenwood's cosmically referential paintings.
Cecilia Corrigan has performed at a variety of institutions in New York, Los Angeles, and London. Her debut book, Titanic (Northwestern University Press, 2014), was awarded the Madeleine P. Plonsker Prize for a first book, and appeared on two of Flavorwire's “Books of the Year” lists for 2014, for academic press and poetry titles. She has previously worked on HBO's Luck, for show-runner David Milch, and recently completed her first feature screenplay. In addition to writing for television, film, and theater, she has published fiction in n+1 & elsewhere, and performs stand up comedy. Corrigan has been interviewed about her work for both BOMB Magazine and Interview, and her performances have been covered by Art in America and The Observer.
