Next week we will be participating in Performance Art Week as a follow-up to the performance work you did earlier this semester. This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade, and you may choose one of the two assignment options below.
Note that since the schedule of events happen on both Thursday 04/20 AND Friday 04/21, we will not be having a formal class meeting on Thursday of next week — use this time to perform or attend.
Submit a proposal for Performance Art Week and perform a piece during the event.
Complete the PAW VIII Entry Form and submit it to Jeff Lambson (firstname.lastname@example.org) and CC me (email@example.com) by this Thursday 04/13. You may propose the piece you did for our performance project, or a new or revised performance art piece. If your proposal is accepted, you will perform your work during the time assigned to you by the curators on Thursday 04/20 or Friday 04/21.
Attend Performance Art Week and write a 3-5 page review.
You may choose any of the events on Thursday 04/20 or Friday 04/21 to attend. Write a 3-5 page (double spaced) review comparing and contrasting two different performances you witnessed. As a guide, you should have roughly one page of introduction to the event and performance art history, a page describing and evaluating each of the two performances you witness, and a page concluding your comparisons of each of the works. Submit your papers to me either via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in person on Thursday 04/27.
