This November, the Performance Area of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA) will be hosting Waldemar Tatarczuk. Born in 1964 in Siemiatycze near Poland's border with Belarus, Tatarczuk is known as one of Poland's most active performance and installation artists, and as a celebrated performance art curator. He lives in Lublin where he founded the Performance Art Center and served as its curator from 1999-2010. He currently is Director of Labyrinth Gallery. He has been active as a performance artist since 1988, participating in events throughout Europe and Asia, including the famed Infraction in Paris, France; Navinki in Minsk, Belarus; Asiatopia in Bangkok, Thailand; KIPAF in Seoul, South Korea; Differences in Warsaw, Poland; to name but a few. Art Kontakt Performance Art Festival (Lublin), European Performance Art Festival EPAF (Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle Warsaw), Performance Arsenal (Arsenal Gallery Bialystok), Open City Festival of Art in Public Spaces (Lublin/Poland), and Performance Art Days (Kyiv, L'viv/Ukraine), count as his most known curatorial projects.
SMFA, in conjunction with Tufts University, offers bachelor's and master's degrees in fine arts, and is renowned for promoting international artists and curators who lecture and lead workshops for students. Tatarczuk's lecture and workshop with SMFA students is a perfect opportunity to highlight the richness of the performance activities that exist in Poland. The event will conclude by a perfomance by Mr. Tatarczuk, sponsored by SMFA in collaboration with the non-profit Mobius, Inc. and the Polish Cultural Institure in New York.
Mobius prides itself on artist exchanges, which have included projects with artists in Poland, Croatia, Macedonia, Taiwan, as well as with other groups in the US.
