Tseng Kwong Chi: Performing for the Camera

Combining photography with performance, personal identity with global politics, and satire with farce, Tseng Kwong Chi (1950–1990) created a compelling body of work whose complexity is belied by its humor and grace.  The exhibition's subtitle, Performing for the Camera, points to the masquerade and theatricality at the root of Tseng's conceptual photography.

John Giorno: Space Forgets You

Giorno’s explosive, visual and concrete works continue in a new series of rainbow paintings that occupy the front gallery.  Giorno is an artistic innovator who has been defying assumptions of poet, performer, political activist, Tibetan Buddhist, and visual artist since he emerged upon the New York art scene in the late 1950s. He is one of the most actively producing and performing artists of his generation.
