December 2, 2017 (Miami, USA) — NeXus, a new Transcontinental Performance Art Platform, an initiative curated by interdisciplinary artist, and cultural entrepreneur, Hector Canonge, will premiere in the United States during Miami Art Week. Hosted by Edge Zones Art Gallery, Miami’s leading performance art venue, and PerForMIA, created and directed by Charo Oquet, NeXus will present new performances by local, national, and international artists selected from a world-wide open call.
For its first edition, NeXus curatorial theme explores and treat notions of human (dis)connections, personal binds, social (re)attachments, misplaced identities, and focal (dis)placements. As a new initiative, NeXus will bring diverse manifestations of performance art where the body is at the center of artistic expression, corporeal examination, and challenging execution.
