Crossing the Line
Crossing the Line is FIAF's fall festival, conceived as a platform to present vibrant new works by a diverse range of trans-disciplinary artists transforming and furthering cultural practices on both sides of the Atlantic. Initiated, conceived, and produced by FIAF in partnership with leading New York cultural institutions, the fourth annual edition will, for seventeen intensive days, continue to deliver the highest caliber of original work, with a specific focus on the artist's role as a critically important thinker and catalyst for social change.

The fourth edition of Crossing the Line is co-curated by Lili Chopra, Artistic Director at FIAF and Simon Dove, Director, Herberger Institute School of Dance at Arizona State University, and runs from September 10-27, 2010. A number of the programs utilize FIAF's own spaces, including Florence Gould Hall, the FIAF Gallery, Tinker Auditorium, and Le Skyroom. Established partners in New York City will also host and co-present events, including Anthology Film Archives, Brooklyn Food Coalition, Columbia University, Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Communal Table, Dance Theater Workshop, Dancing in the Streets, Danspace Project, Eyebeam, FarmCity.US, The Food Experiments, Greenpoint Food Market, The Invisible Dog Center, ISSUE Project Room, Japan Society, The Joyce Theater, Movement Research, Moviehouse at 3rd Ward, Old Stone House, Parks/GreenThumb, and Performance Space 122.
