PERFORMANCE AND PLAY
with MARIO'S FURNITURE 2
November 10, 2006 at 8pm
Join us tonight as Mario's Furniture 2 - Hillary Mushkin and S.E. Barnet's
game installation - is activated for a night of performance, play and
conversation with special invited guests Sara Roberts and M.A. Greenstein.
Sara Roberts has assembled two teams to compete and compare their experience
with the playing of Mario's Furniture 2, the game where people "schlep"
furniture across the gallery in front of a panning video camera scoring
points by sitting on the living room ensemble as often as possible. After
the games, a conversation between Sara, her teams and M. A Greenstein will
take place about the project and performance and play in art practice.
Sara Roberts is a Los Angeles based artist and faculty member in the Music
Department and Center for Integrated Media at CalArts. Her recent work has
looked at performative games and the devices that make them possible. M. A.
Greenstein is a Los Angeles-based art theorist and critic whose writing
often focuses on performance in contemporary art. M.A. is a faculty member
in the Criticism and Theory Department at Art Center.
