Editorial Reviews

Henry Sayre
...[F]or her, the single most powerful effect of performance art [is] the interaction of spectator and spectacle, reception and production, to the point of the dissolution of any meaningful distinction between them....If art history traditionally has been a male-dominated enterprise...Jones [renegotiates] its gender.
