The group show features 50 photographs by artists who use performance as a central part of their process. With elaborate costumes and masquerades, large groups of people, theatrical settings, serial images and cinematic framing, the artists create photographs that are often ambiguous, dreamlike, uncanny or campy.

Performing for the Camera presents 50 photographs by artists who use performance as a central part of their process. With elaborate costumes and masquerades, large groups of people, theatrical settings, serial images and cinematic framing, the artists create photographs that are often ambiguous, dreamlike, uncanny or campy. These works blur fact and fiction by staging images for a medium associated with truth -- teasing and inspiring us to complete the story for ourselves.
Supported by the Advisory Board of the ASU Art Museum and Friends of the ASU Art Museum.
