LINK & PIN is an international performance art series based in Montréal, Canada. It is organized and curated by Adriana Disman along with a huge amount of support from the local performance art community. It holds a constantly changing mission in an effort to stay relevant. Currently, L&P strives to support artists who are in some way marginalized and engages with thinking through anti-disciplinarity and the politics of arts funding.

2013-2014
Focused on performance art but presenting a vast range of interdisciplinary work, LINK & PIN’s Sunday Series turned the usual “evening of performance” on its head by presenting work on Sunday afternoons. Perfectly post-brunch, daytime performance events allow for a different kind of energy and attention with which to share and receive the work. Generally lo-tech/no-tech, the Sunday Series tried to continuously change models and structures through which it runs. With the intention of fostering links in the interdisciplinary arts community, most events were followed by a Discussion Forum. Pointedly not an artists’ talk, Forums opened space for the artists and the public to engage in conversation about the work while sharing tea and (topical) dessert.
