Arts Associate is a performance in which four performers are hired to approach viewers in an empty gallery space as if they are in a retail store. The title of the work refers to “sales associate”. Performers act as a sales persons, selling the idea of the artwork, as opposed to a physical thing. They explain the concept of the performance to the viewers individually. Each performer approaches the viewers with greeting sentences followed by a unified script.
Performers: Patty Farias | Lanie Chalmers | Brianna MacLellan | Sona Safaei | Jonathan Simpson
