Performance Art & Social Space

by Jonathan A. Anderson

Assistant Professor of Art, Jonathan Anderson, lectures on the connection between bodies, earth, space, and the physical and making performance art. He shows how contemporary art moves beyond disinterested contemplation into the physical experience of art, particularly art made during the 1990's.
