Exhibition: Andrea Fraser
Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Jun 30, 2004 - Art - 127 pages
American artist Andrea Fraser's energetic parodies of the art world seem like stand-up comedy, whether she's doing her own wacky take on a docent talk or engaging in an erotic encounter with the Guggenheim Bilbao. But her sometimes-hilarious performances address serious issues, like the relationship between an art institution and its visitors, or the meaning of "education" in a museum. Includes multiple video frames and transcripts of four works performed at the Belkin Gallery at the University of British Columbia.
