Performance 6: Fischerspooner
November 1, 2009
The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, second floor
Part of the Performance Exhibition Series
Fischerspooner is Casey Spooner (b. 1970) and Warren Fischer (b. 1968), who met at the School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Between Worlds originated in workshops with The Wooster Group, and the rehearsal process later became part of the group exhibition It's Not Only Rock N Roll, Baby at the Bozar Museum in Brussels. The piece was later performed at the twenty-eighth annual Sao Paulo Bienal in October 2008. In April 2009, Between Worlds was presented as an open dress rehearsal at The Performing Garage in New York City, and the piece has continually evolved over the course of Fischerspooner’s world tour.
Performa 09 (November 1–22, 2009) is the third edition of the internationally acclaimed biennial of new visual art performance presented by Performa, a nonprofit multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of twentieth-century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century.

The Performance Exhibition Series is made possible by MoMA’s Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
