Artist Tehching Hsieh (b. 1950, Taiwan) gives a talk in conjunction with the exhibition Performance 1: Tehching Hsieh, the inaugural installation in an ongoing series that brings performance documentation, original performance pieces, and live reenactments of historic performances to various locations throughout the Museum. The artist will show highlights of the stunning and versatile visual documentations he made of his durational performances, the last of which, Thirteen Year Plan, was completed in 1999. In a conversation with Adrian Heathfield, professor of performance and visual culture at Roehampton University, London, Hsieh will address the fundamental concept of lived duration in his oeuvre, and how the forceful resilience and rigorous lengths of his performances challenge the conventional division of artistic and lived time.
