Performance Art Exhibit
are invited to attend a performance art video exhibit featuring the works
of Gustavus students from 8-10 p.m. Jan. 17 in Alumni Hall. Performance
art is a medium that emerged in the 1960s; it is based on live performance
by the artist and, unlike theater, tied to a specific artist. Performance
art is also generally not repeated. Titled "Flesh by Student Bodies: Performance
Art on Video," the exhibit focuses on the body and what it means to be
a physical being. The specific themes are diverse, including body image,
sexuality, social pressure, historic context, self-perception, vulnerability,
food, biology, childhood, adulthood, and gender. The event is free and
sponsored by the Gustavus Art History Club. (Some content may be deemed
inappropriate for children.) For more information, contact Travis Nygard
(email@example.com) or Tim
