This week my posts will be entirely about cool exhibitions that are taking place in London now. I’ve been personally to them and just didn’t have time to post before. But now, here we go!

If you are in London, you still have time to go and check them out. If you are far away, the blog will give you a taste. ;)

Laurie Anderson, Trisha Brown, Gordon Matta-Clark: Pioneers of the Downtown Scene NY 1970s at Barbican Centre till May 12

Performance artist and musician Laurie Anderson, choreographer Trisha Brown and artist Gordon Matta-Clark were friends and active participants in the New York art community in the early 70s (recession times), working fluidly between visual art and performance with the city as their backdrop.

They were well-known for taking over the empty factories and warehouses in the downtown area south of Houston street, now known as Soho. The Barbican’s exhibition attempts to recreate that scene.

Below, there is a great view of the exhibition:

Performance and visual art by Tony Orrico.

Perfect technique, calculation, symmetry and body control are key in his excellent performances. And the final result is also fantastic.

Check out some drawings and the video performances.
