100 Years
Tehching Hseih "One Year Performance" 1978-79

100 YEARS (VERSION #4 BOSTON, 2012) | Boston University Art Gallery | January 19–March 25 | More than 200 manifestos, photos, films, and videos make up an ambitious survey of performance art from the past century. The project, put together by New York's Performa and the Museum of Modern Art's PS1, spans from Mary Wigman and Yves Klein to Carolee Schneemann, Yoko Ono, and Ryan Trecartin. And the Boston version is supplemented by performances and videos of shenanigans from Boston and Providence since the 1970s.
