including three new commissions:

Agatha Gothe-Snape (The Commercial, Sydney)

Neha Choksi (Project88, Mumbai) 
Performance at 1:30 pm each day

Neha Choksi performs Frame our ears open (2017), following in the footsteps of previous works Minds to Lose/Petting Zoo – for which she anaesthetized herself and four farm animals – and A Rehearsal for a moment of silence for which she stayed in mute isolation for a week. 

Mark Fell (Southfirst, New York)
Performance at 12:30 pm each day

The Sheffield-based artist grounded in the sub-cultures of electronic music, will bring together computer technology and Tala – the classical music of South India – to create patterns of

Candida Powell-Williams debuts Boredom and its Acid Touch (2017), a performance using characters from the marginalia of illuminated manuscripts; and culminating in a series of GIFs, exploring what contemporary marginalia might be.
