This week’s cover might feel a little familiar.
The latest issue of TIME (on the right) hits newsstands Friday. Its predecessor (on the left) was released last month.
A Guiding Light (Part II), a film by Liam Gillick and Anton Vidokle was recently screened on the occasion of Performa 11. First shown last year at the Cooper Union Theater, this second screening took place in a crowded classroom on the second floor of the Performa Hub, and was accompanied by Gillick, Vidokle and Gao Shiming, curator of the Shanghai Biennial in China who commissioned the film along with Performa. Watching the film in this new setting reduced formality and an ideal environment for discussion emerged. The classroom wasn’t necessarily filled with students, but rather a mixed group including Performa Director Roselee Goldberg and others interested not only in A Guiding Light but also in the active dialogue that Gillick and Vidokle bring forth via their ongoing collaboration.
