The Art of Performance presents a selection of works on paper from TCU’s Permanent Art Collection. Although these works are very different from one another, they all explore the broad concept of performance. “Performance” here encompasses music, theatre, festivity, and artistic creation. This exhibition also addresses the importance of audience and community participation. The work is dynamic, unexpected and presents audience members with a new perspective. This exhibition considers audience as a vital part of a performance, and we invite you to be a part of that audience.
Artists featured in The Art of Performance include Kunisada Gototei, Isamu Hayakawa,George Lockwood, Nunzio Gulino, Joseph A.Pecsenke, Kitagawa Utamaro, and Ádám Würtz.This exhibition is curated by TCU MA Art History students Phoebe Adams, Emma Fletcher, Paulina Martín, Kim Phan Nguyen, and Sarah Webb.
