If “Old” art always evidences a certain pride in having all the details under control and meticulously crafted, “New” art has spent much of the past century disrupting certainties, blurring boundaries, and urging us to pay attention to all the issues that old art hoped we wouldn’t notice. Accidents. The sometimes arbitrary nature of what’s in the foreground or background, or vice versa. What’s happening at the edge. For me, “Disruption” perfectly captures the pleasure of never being altogether certain what you are meant to look at. Who you are meant to listen to.
While Lida Fox is the obvious star of “Distruption.” So too is the insistent, awkwardly overlapping chorus of interior voices — India Menuez, Cordula Reyer, Iva Gocheva and Tatiana Pajkovic. Each suggesting a visitor’s first impression of New York, but seeing a slightly different performance—to paraphrase Edwin Denby — of dancers, buildings and people in the street.
