Kristin Bauer and Peter Bugg to Talk/Perform at TMoCA's Vision Quest Opening This Friday
Continuing with its goal of challenging institutionalized art, the Tempe Museum of Contemporary Art is hosting an "alternative artist lecture by celebrity guests" as part of the opening for Vision Quest, an exhibition curated by Jill Marie Mason and Caroline Battle.

"Kristin and Peter have collaborated to present an interactive lecture between the TMoCA visitors and the celebrity guests at the opening for the 'state-of-the-art' exhibition, Vision Quest," says Becky Nahom, who helped organize the lecture. "The audience will actively participate in the artist's professional and personal achievements in this game we call life, aka Celebrity Big Brother. A prize will be awarded as the very highest level of achievement and honor."
Yeah, we know. It doesn't make any sense to us either, and according to Nahom, it's not supposed to.
Luckily, we have faith in the artistic and performative talents of Bugg and Bauer -- both artists received the Phoenix Art Museum's Contemporary Forum Award (in 2011 and 2012, respectively).
