KEYNOTE by Jenny Schlenzka at The Performance Show

Renowned Jenny Schlenzka (director of Performance Space New York) will give a keynote lecture at The Performance Show in collaboration with WdW, center for contemporary art. Jenny Schlenzka is Executive Artistic Director of Performance Space 122, and was formerly a curator of performance at MoMA PS1.

'At Performance Space 122, we celebrate courage – to challenge preconceived notions, to break barriers, both in substance and form, to take visible actions towards a freer, more expressive, diverse and equitable society. Jenny is a bold risk-taker whose programmatic choices combine a thorough curatorial approach with such great instincts on what it is that makes the heart of our extended community pulse. I am confident she will be a great leader at a very exciting time of growth for the organization.' - Enrico Ciotti

Jenny is PS122’s first female artistic leader and will build upon the legacy of both Vallejo Gantner (2005–2016) and Mark Russell (1985–2005). The Performance Show is an initiative of Art Rotterdam, curated by Zippora Elders
