Event Details
Performance art is a form of expression that is concerned more with content, context, and concept than audience expectations and entertainment value. Performance art can be laboriously scripted or spastically random. Performance art is at the same time the highest, purest, and most liberating form of art while being it's most constricting, confusing, and convoluted. Designed to be equally challenging to both performer and viewer, performance art is set in the mediums of time, space, and audience gaze.

Still not sure what performance art is? Come out and find out. 

Artists pooled from the Visual, Dance, Experimental music, and performance communities of Austin's thriving art scene, are going to put their definitions of performance art to the test only an audience can provide. Each artist is given 15 minutes of time to conceive, conceal, converge, and conclude. Come be a part of it.

This time we are going to be at 29th Street Ballroom!
