How can we blend the visual arts with the performing arts in a museum? In other words, how can we "exhibit a performance"?
Architecture masters student here. I chose the arts to be the subject of my diploma project this year. You can read my previous conversation - which was really fruitful - if you want to be more involved with the topic. I want to conceive a museum of contemporary arts, Piece of arts related to photography, architecture, new media, industrial design, fashion, sculpture and other will be exhibited in the different galleries. Since the land is placed next to a beautiful church's piazza in a historical forgotten street that will soon be converted to an interactive public space, I thought that creating room for performing arts would be a great idea. The performance will not only take place in the street and the piazza but also on platforms in every level of the museum, some of which will be on the exterior facades and others will be built between the galleries. Contemporary dance, music, mime and statue are what I am talking about. I want them to be optional pieces of arts exhibited between the visual arts'.
How do you think this would work? Can anyone give me examples of projects like this?
