Performance art, as a genre, draws upon and blurs distinctions between visual art, theatre, dance, video and film, activism, spoken word and other expressive forms. Kohl Gallery, in conjunction with SANDBOX at Washington College, is pleased to present this interdisciplinary series of live performance art works that draw broadly from points of origin across creative disciplines.

Context plays a significant role in all performance art work, whether presented in public space or for an intimate audience. In a gallery setting, performance art is most frequently presented as supplemental or corollary programming; it is far less common to find gallery space given over entirely to such fleeting and inherently temporary events. This series asks the artists to contend with the context of the gallery itself— the “white cube” both favored and maligned by artistic practice and convention. The artists featured here will present original live works conceived or adapted for the gallery setting.
