Sundays at PARMER ­– food, drinks, Wikipedia
464 Quincy Street Brooklyn NY 11221

On March 2 we will be creating a new Wikipedia page for the choreographer Will Rawls who is currently working on a digital project for Triple Canopy “that investigates the personal and Symbolic lineage of a herd of foam-core German shepherds he created for several recent dance works.” We will expand on the existing entry for Judith Butler who withdrew from the talk she was scheduled to participate in with Jen Hoffman on March 6th after protests over her advocacy for BDSS(boycott, divestment and sanctions of Israel). We will also be creating a new page for Murray Guy, the Chelsea gallery that will open Ornament and Reproach, an exhibition of Moyra Davey’s work this Saturday, March 1st. We will also work on the list of influences from the past three weeks to create, edit and expand on Wikipedia pages for Sarah Cain, Letitia Spangler, Julia Brown, Luce Irigaray, Dance Gang, Sharon Van Etten, Kaja Silverman, Trinh Min-Ha, Lydia Bell, Daniella Isamit Morales, Yve Laris Cohen, Åsa Elzén, Anne Wagner, Ulrike Müller and Trinie Dalton.

Sundays at PARMER is a programming component of Lindsay Benedict’s photo essay Are You There? Yes. Are You There? Yes.(2011) on view at PARMER until April 7, 2014. Over the nine weeks of the exhibition these weekly meetings will draw from a list of the artist’s influences to add new Wikipedia pages and additional content to existing entries. In this way the artist supports the practices that have made hers possible through the community that comes together around the exhibition.  This series of Wikipedia events was inspired by the 2014 Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon that has since spurred several other such events and communities around the world.
