It's easier to talk about art while washing dishes, Wadsworth Atheneum. <<prev list next>>

As a lecture for the Atheneum, I showed videos of past projects in the restaurant's kitchen while washing the lunch hour's dirty dishes. Those who came were given a pen that was signed and read: "the objectofyour authorship." They then videoed me, signed my arms, some helping me to finish the dishes. One woman came up to me halfway through and gave me a pair of rubber gloves she had brought: "I was too embarrassed earlier, but I thought that you might need these."

Archive begun 1995. Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, CT. Twenty-seven people attended. Twenty-seven pens given. Project can be repeated. Archive in the Wadsworth Atheneum Collection, purchased with Peter Norton Family Foundation funds.
