A new annual project that aims to support contemporary artistic production in the area of performance. Open call until July 26, 2020.

In 2020, an unprecedented collaborative project between maat and BoCA is born with the wish of fostering contemporary artistic creation following the evolution of the concept of
performance as a collaborative practice and its ramifications embracing novel concepts of theatricality, choreography and mediality.

The project supports the production of works by young practitioners of 35 years of age or younger — every year an international jury will award a winning project to benefit from funding, debut space and international promotion. This first edition is dedicated to the support of Portuguese creators.

RExFORM – International Performance Project proposes to support artists and creators from various fields with the realization of new creations that challenge the usual exhibition format, looking for innovative physical and virtual alternatives that play with the porosity of artistic borders. It is an invitation to projects that point to new languages, which, in the end, lead to clues to the future, for a generation of (and with) the future.

With a jury composed by Beatrice Leanza (maat Executive Director), Catherine Wood (Performance Senior Curator of Tate Modern), Chloé Siganos (Performing Arts Director of Centre Pompidou) and John Romão (Artistic Director of BoCA), the intention is to support original writing in new ways, contributing to the recognition and visibility of younger artists. With a vast network of partners and through continuous monitoring since its initial phase, the winning project should include a first phase of research and presentation in the digital context (online), before being launched in the institutional context of maat – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, and, in a later phase, benefit from national and international touring with BoCA – Biennial of Contemporary Arts.
