In the spirit of the 2010 Dallas Museum of Art exhibition, "Performance/Art," and New York's "Performa 13," the upcoming exhibition, "In The Room We Discovered An-other In The Corner" draws on dance, fashion, theater, music and technology to capture a snapshot of the current evolving nature of performance art.
Dallas exhibition organizer and artist Alison Starr will bring together more than a dozen local and national artists to make work that references the body and explores the idea of "the other” in a variety of media.
Exhibiting artists are from Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Houston, New York City, and Norman, Oklahoma.
