Performance artists talking in the eighties sex, food, money/fame, ritual/death by Linda Montano ( )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Performance artist Linda Montano, curious about the influence childhood experience has on adult work, invited other performance artists to consider how early events associated with sex, food, money/fame, or death/ritual resurfaced in their later work. The result is an original and compelling talking performance that documents the production of art in an important and often misunderstood community. Among the more than 100 artists Montano interviewed from 1979 to 1989 were John Cage, Suzanne Lacy, Faith Ringgold, Dick Higgins, Annie Sprinkle, Allan Kaprow, Meredith Monk, Eric Bogosian, Adrian Piper, Karen Finley, and Kim Jones. Her discussions with them focused on the relationship between art and life, history and memory, the individual and society, and the potential for individual and social change. The interviews highlight complex issues in performance art, including the role of identity in performer-audience relationships and art as an exploration of everyday conventions rather than a demonstration of virtuosity

Surveying the first decade video art and alternative media in the U.S ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Part 4 of a program presenting the first decade of a comprehensive history of experimental and independent video. These feminist video works challenge the reigning but waning modernist and materials-based discourse of the '70s, as well as psychoanalytic theory and the construction of the subject. Video is used to examine one's own life and the experiences of female friends and family, and to question one's own relationship to what is coming to be understood as "her"/history. As histories of women in the arts and in society are explored, critical attention is also focused onto speculation about the existence of an essential female aesthetic, and the position of women as objects of the (male) gaze

I say I am : women's performance video from the 1970's ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"These video performances by eleven women artists, made between 1972-1980, sketch a time when feminism was a new and powerful liberatory movement, when video was a relatively new invention, and when social institutions, including the art world, were undergoing radical reevaluation. The subject matter of 1970s feminist performance video was personal, often articulated in the direct address of an artist performing alone. Autobiography, identity, relation of self to others, questioning of female stereotypes, and the expansion of self through personae were recurrent themes"--Container
