For over a decade Alex Schweder has used the term ‘performance architecture’ to describe the creative practice in which he uses buildings as media to ask questions about who we become through our actions in relation to them.

His works along these lines have been collected and exhibited internationally including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Performa 17, and the Tate Britain. Recently Schweder has been exploring inflatables as instruments to simultaneously create sound and space in collaboration with sound artist Mieko Suzuki for the 2020 A L’ARME! Festival with The Breath Before.

In the fall of 2021 this auditory direction will be furthered at the invitation of Carrie Mae Weems as part of her ground breaking presentation of ideas at New York’s Park Avenue Armory.
