> DESCRIPTION

Exploring the ambiguous line between fine arts and performing arts, this thematic exhibition presents works in various media from the past three decades that respond to and embrace theatricality in contemporary art practice. Works include Janet Cardiff's The Telephone Call, a participatory project in which visitors can check out a video camera and follow a self-guided narrative through the museum; Guy Ben-Ner's Stealing Beauty video, which shows the artist and his family in IKEA model rooms; and a new project from Bay Area-based artist Tucker Nichols, commissioned by SFMOMA for the exhibition's in-gallery cinema and performance space. Also in the exhibition are seminal historic works by Charles Atlas, James Coleman, and General Idea, as well as more recent works by Sharon Hayes, Craigie Horsfield, and Mika Tajima, among others. The exhibition is organized in conjunction with the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial.
