To Stay Alive /| You Must Be Live

The 6th Yellow Fish Festival has taken shape as a long form, durational engagement with a cohort of nine artists. This is Phase 3 of our nine month festival, providing the artists the opportunity to continue processing their work in live form. Throughout the month of May, the artists will present installations, live performances, digital livestreams, films, and more. This phase is hosted by 153 COFFEY, a multidisciplinary, artist-led studio located in Red Hook, New York.

The nine artists will use time as concept and material in actions and ideas emphasizing and expanding upon Care Methodologies in respect of the times and in response to our festival theme: To Stay Alive /| You Must be Live. You can read more and visit the archive of Phase 1 and 2 at our website:
