May 19, 2017 | Vito Acconci - Four Works from the 1970s
Hosted by Christopher West Presents
Opening Reception: 6-8 pm
Please join us to celebrate four early and important works by American artist Vito Acconci. Acconci came of age in the politically agitated years when artists began trying to find ways around the making and selling of objects. By the late 1960s, Acconci had transformed himself into a performance and video artist, often using his own body as the subject matter. Much of his work was highly confrontational and incorporated subversive social commentary. In 1969 he began using photography to document various actions, four examples of these photographs comprise this exhibition. For more information about the event and artist visit here.
