Shaun Leonardo: Primitive Games

In “Primitive Games,” Shaun Leonardo’s new commission for the Guggenheim Social Practice initiative, the artist investigates the state of public debate in contemporary society. Loosely based on “calcio storico” (a historical form of football), this live performance culminates a series of movement-based workshops generated by and bringing together four seemingly divided communities.

On June 21, 2018, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s iconic rotunda in New York will be transformed into an arena for sport-like competition, where the communities’ dynamics will be framed by the increasingly divisive national political climate.
