    Not even considering the content of the presentation; the part that I’m focusing on is the stance that getting up and working your weird issues out in front of a crowd is considered an act of artistic merit and not something you may want to sit down with your female friends (or male friends or parents or therapist) and hash out.   And if you must broadcast, at least make it entertaining or thought provoking or memorable (none of which felt like this performance had the capacity to do according to the article).

    There’s good performance art out there - a lot of it, actually.  This is just super lazy/lame to me.

  3. Conceptual Art summarized:

    I always like to approach performances like, What can I learn from this? ”

    I think of conceptual artists as takers - they take your attention and your time and your patience (and in this case, your lessons) and they don’t really give anything back.
