THE ADVENTURES OF THE AESTHETIC
Theater for the New City
East Village, New York City
The Adventures of the Aesthetic is an anachronistic survey of art theory and aesthetics. Focusing on the latter half of the 20th century, this show seeks to flatten and mollify distinction between modern and post-modern, abstraction and minimalism, and ultimately define the pure truth-value in nature. These days, the rift between audience and performer has yet to be bridged. When the present moment is the only moment, it is that moment that can control the future. The innovation of the visual phenomenon as premiered in the illusionary space of linear perspective paintings of the 14 cent., re-employs itself in 20th century Op Art without pictorializing the space in the image.
