"Performance at Pomona" Previewed in L.A. Weekly as Pushing the Limits of Performance Art

One particular performance of the upcoming Performance at Pomona, a series of three performance art pieces by Judy Chicago, James Turrell '65 and John M. White, has been heralded by L.A. Weekly as a work that pushes the boundaries of performance art. James M. White's recreation of Preparation F, a piece he originally staged at Pomona in 1971, will be recreated in the gym on January 21, 2012, with current football players. The article says, "By moving a football practice onto a stage, White has moved the game out of the arena of entertainment and under the critical microscope of art. It will ask the question: Why does society condone violence if it's committed while in uniform?" Performance at Pomona is part of Pacific Standard Time's Performance and Public Art Festival, which spans 11 days and has more than 30 performances.
