We have approached curating the Movement Research Festival: Fall 2013 with a self-serving hand, moving away from macro-design, philosophy, pretense, vision and other things and closer towards a space to acknowledge wholly subjective personal preference, budget and an absence of category or logic. Movement is constant and thus itinerant. So is NYC and most places. We are rarely ever just here anymore but usually here, everywhere and nowhere. Where, when and how we make and rehearse work is anybody’s guess or business (i.e., in our heads, in the shower, on a bike, train, in the studio, the privacy of headphones on public transport). Ideas, like work, space, art, time, language, money, text, control, accident, emotion, intellect, space, privacy and others, are constantly conflated while art is getting made. It gets made, constantly, in spite of and because of all this. The artists presented in this festival are moving all the time, making art all the time, performing all the time and working all the time. Eschewing possibly irrelevant and older models for making art (time, space, money, etc.) to investigate their form, these artists go about the task no matter what. And all of these things are colliding, controlling, communicating, confusing, collating and conflating all at once, which is evident in their work, and they create with the things they have at hand. Like a lasagna.
