Performance art at the Yale University Art Gallery

I got home late from work because I stayed late for the College Night event. It featured video and performance art from Yale MFA students. I'm not a big performance art fan—in fact I usually don't like it—however there were some cool pieces. I thought I'd share a couple of performances I thought were cool. I didn't take pictures of any of the videos. Oh well!

This piece by an artist collaborative called T.R.A.S.H. showcased some cool costumes and props they made entirely out of trash. It was a really creative use of materials.

People Who Need People, by Katie Vida was a humorous interaction between her and a sculpture by David Smith that is in the Yale University Art Gallery's sculpture garden.

Those whacky artists, what will they think of next?! In general I've learned that all performance starts with leotards and goes from there.
