This dual exhibition is also a collaboration between the ITINERANT Festival (May 16 is part of the 2017 Festival) and PERFORMANCY FORUM, two of NYC's longest-running platforms for performance art. This pair of evenings is organized by Esther Neff. 

ITINERANT was created by artist Hector Canonge. The initiative was a small platform for Contemporary Performance Art, and had its origins in the monthly series A-Lab Forum that Canonge organized at Crossing Art Gallery in Flushing, Queens. Following the growing interest in Live Art, and the need to present performance in the borough, ITINERANT was launched in 2011 under the auspices of QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development. In 2012, ITINERANT was recognized by the City of New York as the first Performance Art festival taking place in the five boroughs (Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island) that make the metropolitan region. Following the large scale venture in NYC, Canonge journeyed through Europe and Latin America creating, in 2013, the Spanish edition of the festival and calling it Encuentro ITINERANTe with public presentations in various cities in the Southern Hemisphere. In 2015 the festival featured 30 artists from over ten countries with presentations at the Queens Museum, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Momenta Art, Glasshouse ArtLifeLab. The Atrium of PS 69 in Jackson Heights hosted the opening and closing nights of the festival. Public Interventions took place at 37th Rd. Pedestrian Plaz and at Manuel de Dios Unanue Triangle Plaza, Roosevelt Avenue and 83rd Street.
