Organized to complement the Museums showing of Performance Now, Retro·active presents a historical view of performance art. This important genre exploded onto the scene in the mid-1960s and has developed over the past 50 years to incorporate dance, music, theater, technology, and audience participation and to address aesthetic, personal, social, economic, and political concerns. Six groundbreaking works by artists Chris Burden, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, Paul McCarthy, Yoko Ono, and Carolee Schneemann trace this pivotal moment and provide a context for contemporary performance art.
