Melanie Gilligan: Prison for Objects
January 11-12 and 15-19, 2009, 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
As part of the exhibition The Space of the Work and the Place of the Object, Melanie Gilligan's Prison for Objects is an installation and performance that dramatizes our experience of commodities in the past and present. Actors perform the roles of artist and art writer, their characters playing out various contradictions and clichés of art production and reception. Performances last approximately 20 minutes and will take place throughout
the day during normal gallery hours. Until January 19.
