Jun 14, 2014 to Sep 21, 2014
10:00 AM until 04:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Organized to coincide with the Museum’s showing of Independent Curators International’s Performance Now exhibition,Retro•active presents a historical view of this important genre. Performance art as a genre exploded onto the art scene in the mid-1960s and developed through the 1970s and 1980s to incorporate audience participation, dance, and video. Seven groundbreaking works by artists Carolee Schneemann, Chris Burden, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, and Paul McCarthy trace this pivotal moment and provide an historical context for contemporary performance art.
