Looks Like Torture
Presented by Nicholas Cohn Art Projects + AKArt
HERE, New York, NY
February 21 – March 30, 2013
Looks Like Torture is a performance art-based exhibition that examines social behaviors and the complicated and often painful path of self-discovery—filled with bias, misrepresentation, abuse, and insecurity. Looks Like Torture features work by Bahar Behbahani, Negar Behbahani, Sean Fader, Jamie Knowles, Jaeeun Lee, Taus Makhacheva, Mitch Miller, Joshua Seidner, Marielis Seyler, and Aiden Simon.
On view at HERE from February 21 through March 30, 2013, Looks Like Torture will present a series of performance art happenings, video, photography, and site- specific installations by an internationally renowned selection of artists. Co-curated by Nicholas Cohn Art Projects and Amy Kisch of AKArt, the exhibition responds to ongoing ethnic conflicts, discrimination, animal cruelty and environmental neglect. Performance art presentations will take place on February 21, March 4, and March 11, featuring the work of Joshua Seidner, Jaeeun Lee, and Mitch Miller respectively.
