This first exhibition devoted exclusively to The Wooster Group will focus on fifteen shows that collectively represent a cross section of their work (with four full performances screening each day) emphasizing their important role in addressing questions of representation, identity, and agency which parallel developments in visual art. As much image-makers as performers, their interests straddle a line that encompasses both. Through the presentation of archival material, performance videos, and objects which reveal the enormous depth and complexity of their projects, this exhibition is meant as both a concise overview and celebration of The Wooster Group, an evolving collective of independent-minded artists whose work continues to challenge the cultural status quo in America and abroad.
