Art bash is the annual student exhibition of freshman students of SAIC curated by faculty. It was really an AMAZING show. There were many heavily conceptual works of young talented artists of SAIC. Some works were so heavy that it went bonkers over my head. It felt like Einstein explaining 10 year old kid ‘theory of relativity’. Though there were a few that I could comprehend but rest were “I dont know whats going on” types. May be I have to go back to my history books and revise my post-modernist art. Interesting thing was to see students are really interested in installation art and performance art. 

So clearly ‘performance art’ who is usually the underdog in art world was shining but our star performer ‘painting’ didn’t perform upto the mark, I guess Michael Fried’s prophecy of ‘death of painting’ is going to come true.
