PERFORMING ART: Transactions & Provocations

What do you give and receive when interacting with a work of art?
When art affects you, do your reactions and emotions also affect the work? Often, we exchange money for an opportunity to view art. How does that transaction impact how we look at what is on display, and what other kinds of transactions are possible in an art space? Join the cast of Performing Art for a *free* site-specific performance experience exploring these questions and more. RSVP here
