We’re very excited to announce the appointment of Performance Space 122’s new Executive Artistic Director, Jenny Schlenzka! Below is a letter from Enrico Ciotti, PS122 Board President, with the good news:

Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Performance Space 122 has appointed Jenny Schlenzka, a respected curator of performance at MoMA PS1, as our next Executive Artistic Director.

headshot_eblastAt Performance Space 122, we celebrate courage – to challenge preconceived notions, to break barriers, both in substance and form, to take visible actions towards a freer, more expressive, diverse and equitable society. Jenny is a bold risk-taker whose programmatic choices combine a thorough curatorial approach with such great instincts on what it is that makes the heart of our extended community pulse. I am confident she will be a great leader at a very exciting time of growth for the organization. 

Jenny will become PS122’s first female artistic leader and will build upon the legacy of both Vallejo Gantner (2005–2016) and Mark Russell (1985–2005). She brings over a decade of curatorial experience, primarily in live performance and media art, to PS122 as we prepare to return to our beloved East Village home. You can read more about Jenny Schlenzka and PS122 in the announcement recently published in The New York Times.

Many of you have stood by us through this transitional period of our history and, for this, we cannot thank you enough. Your dedication to the organization and the audiences and artists we support has sustained us mentally and fiscally. We look forward to the work that lies ahead. 

I hope to see you all in January at the Coil Festival. 

Cheers, 
Enrico Ciotti
President, Performance Space 122 Board of Directors
