Inverse Performance Art Festival


A new performance art festival will make its debut in Fayetteville this month.

The event, called Inverse Performance Art Festival, is planned for April 22-23 at several venues across the region.

The festival is the brainchild of local artist Cynthia Post Hunt and her friend and fellow artist Emma Saperstein of Dallas, and will include a variety of lectures and performances from artists all over the country that have worked with or inspired them.

Hunt said it all started when she and Saperstein were plotting to bring mentors and friends Industry of the Ordinary, featuring Chicago-based artists Adam Brooks and Mathew Wilson, to Fayetteville for a performance.

“Once we figured out a way to get them here, we decided we had to throw a party,” Hunt said. “And it just grew from there.”

The idea, she said, was to highlight some of the local performers, while exposing the Fayetteville scene to some of the other things happening around the country.

“We thought it was important to highlight the artists that we already have working here,” Hunt said. “But also, we wanted to bring in some of the artists we know to show folks around here what else is out there.”
