FADO is pleased to welcome Marita Bullman (Germany) and Ignacio Pérez Pérez (Venezuela/Finland) to the International Visiting Artists series, along with Liina Kuittinen (Finland). This series seeks to bring exceptional artists from the global performance art scene to Toronto, to present a new work (September 20) and give an artist talk (September 21) about their own practices and the contemporary performance art ecologies of their home cities/countries.
In addition to presenting new solo performance works, both Marita Bullmann and Ignacio Pérez Pérez will engage audiences in talks about their individual practices.
Marita Bullman and Ignacio Pérez Pérez’s appearance in Toronto is in collaboration with VIVA! Art Action, one of FADO’s enduring partners. FADO and VIVA! have partnered several times (2013: Tomasz Szrama / Poland, Macarena Perich Rosas / Chile; 2015: Victoria Gray / UK, Dorothea Rust / Switzerland) over the years to share the presentation of international artists to both platforms in order to bring exceptional artists and their work to audiences in both cities; in addition to giving visiting artists the unique opportunity of engaging with performance communities in both Toronto and Montreal.
