Spouting Off – This Friday!

Posted in News on Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Friday February 24th, 10am-6pm

Symposium 2012
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Blurring the lines between art and knowledge, the Performance Lecture developed in the 1960s as a sub-genre of Performance Art. Chris Burden, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Morris, Robert Smithson, and Joseph Beuys all used this format to debate the conception, context, and circulation of an “artwork.” Today artists continue to push these boundaries in new and unexpected ways. Spouting Off is a one-day symposium that investigates the new horizons of this form.
