10 Pre-Rejected, Pre-Approved Performances: Midnight In The Deli
2005, web page, $100 worth of deli goods, digital video, wood
Artists' Space, We are all Together: Media(ted) Performance

“10 Pre-Rejected, Pre-Approved Performances” was a list of performance-based artworks that had been rejected by curators at various venues worldwide. An on-line vote via the MTAA website determined which performance was created. Documentation of the performance and voting process was shown as the final piece.

The winning performance was entitled “Midnight In The Deli,” which consisted of an installation created with $100 worth of materials bought at the nearest 24-hour ATM-enabled deli or convienance store. The materials were purchased at midnight.

A video of the artists purchasing the materials and the final sculptural object were exhibited in the gallery.

Please go to the archived voting page for lots more information, including more installation shots, links to blog posts and a video interview with MTAA talking about the piece. permanent link to this post
