The School for Temporary Liveness, presents The Library which will run September 25-October 1, 2019 at the Philadelphia Art Alliance at University of the Arts, 251 S. 18th Street, Philadelphia, PA. This is one of the projects that marks the Art Alliance at University of the Arts' programmatic debut. The Library is FREE and open to the public. Advance registration will be available at www.temporaryliveness.org in mid-August.
The Library is home to nora chipaumire's #PUNK 100% POP N!GGA, a three-part live-performance album inspired by chipaumire's formative years in Zimbabwe during the '70s, '80s and '90s. It explores the sonic ideologies of punk, pop and Congolese rumba, through the iconic artists Patti Smith, Grace Jones and Rit Nzele, respectively. Each part is embedded with a lecture or history lesson that explores how knowledge can be shared through live performance.
