Festivals: M:ST 4 Biennial | October 3 - 17, 2008.
With a rich and varied history, performance art has consistently found ways to provoke, challenge, and engage audiences. From quiet galleries to noisy street corners, performance art has an ability to infiltrate and implicate that is unique among most forms of creative expression. Personal, public, political, and poetic, the artists in the M:ST 4 Performance Series contribute to an ongoing dialogue about the spaces and approaches for contemporary performative practices. Traditional strategies of parody, spectacle, endurance, and direct documentation continue to evolve and find new meaning in the works of these artists.
