Genesis Project dates
August 1st - August 28th, 2009

Genesis Project is an artist’s residency for body-based artists who identify as working between disciplines and/or seek to integrate other disciplines into their performance practice through open-source collaboration and horizontal exchange of knowledge, as defined by the resident artists. Genesis Project facilitates an environment wherein creativity is the act of investigation rather than what is produced from it. This model yields a environment for investigation and the creation of unique body-based work. The residency is sponsored by Basekamp in collaboration with Culture Push, a New York-based non-profit art organization, in which diverse professionals meet through artist-led projects and cross-disciplinary symposia. The residency is directed by Arturo Vidich, co-director of Culture Push.

Genesis Project received 36 applications from New York, Philadelphia, several other US cities, and 8 countries abroad. The 5 aritsts come from diverse backgrounds, bringing their skills and curiosity to form a unique, dynamic group. They will converge at Basekamp in Philadelphia from August 1st-28th, 2009.
