Didact is a simultaneous reading by four peo ple of all the interpretive labels for all the artworks in Destroy the Picture: Painting the Void\, 1949–1962. For each reading\, artist Lou Mallozzi is accompanied by an art historian and several MCA docents. F or the March performance\, David Getsy will accompany Mallozzi through the galleries. Spoken quietly but insistently\, the verbalized version of these labels transforms information into an undulating auditory atmosphere for t he artworks and the viewers in each gallery\, calling attention to the inst itutional\, educational\, contemplative\, social\, historical\, and archite ctural contexts of the museum experience.
