How do we describe contemporary art and performance? Inquiry and exploration are at the core of this interactive installation on view at BAM this spring.

In Terms of Performance—co-edited by Paula Marincola of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage and Shannon Jackson of UC Berkeley—is an online resource of intersecting essays and interviews from artists, curators, presenters, and scholars reflecting on the relationship between visual art, theater, choreography, and performance art. For this exhibition in the Natman Room, IToP is reimagined as an installation for visitors, while selections from the Leon Levy BAM Digital Archive—images, text, video, and audio documentation—illuminate and extend key points from IToP’s web of reference. In tandem, these living resources capture the evolving discourse around the contested terms and traditions of interdisciplinary work.

A special evening event and reception will be activated by performances and discussions led by artists who are involved with the IToP anthology.
