CAA Statements

The statements listed below were all written by artist members of the College Art Association (CAA), and cover diverse aspects of the theory and practice of art in performance. They were originally brought together for a special 'performance art' edition of Art Journal (Winter edition, 1997 Vol. 56, No.4), which was guest edited by Martha Wilson. Franklin Furnace is proud to be able to present these statements here, as part of the Franklin Furnace archive of Deep Research, since they are some of the many very interesting statements which sadly but finally could not be included in the published version of the Journal, due to lack of space.

The copyright remains with artists at all times.
