The conceptual, non-object-based side of performance art comes into collision and conflict with its popular, folk, and spiritual sides in this evening of performances by artists influenced by and working with the aesthetics, structures, and
intentions of performance art’s rooted forms. A certain type of
subversion exists in this work, especially in its relationship with performance art’s doppelgangers, burlesque and cabaret. Confronted with the conceptual, durational, and political sides of performance art, these artists use subjective and aesthetic experience to create hybrid work.
