“On April 17th, performance artists will present works that investigate the relationship between those in positions of power and what it means to want to be the dominant prescence. We will particularly investigate this from the point of view of the artist and institutional structures in which either entity can be viewed as dominant at different times within the given process. Sometimes the artist is left begging for entry into a museum, record label, tv show, etc… Ultimately, envy is cyclical and power is always shifting.”
