DESCRIPTION

The advent of portable video equipment enabled artists to document and distribute performance events captured in real time. Some artists went further to create performance for media, replicating performances from past performances and confronting the challenging space created by bodies. This screening includes films by Bas Jan Ader, Candace Compton, Sam Erenberg, Morgan Fisher, Cynthia Maughan, Bruce Nauman, Paul McCarthy, Susan Mogul, Richard Newton, Allan Sekula, and Grahame Weinbren that raise questions about the nature and purpose of performance, and also playfully look at how the camera, filmmaker, and projectionist also perform their roles.

In person: Sam Erenberg and Richard Newton
