18th Street Arts Center Hosts York Chang Artist Talk

On Saturday, July 23 at 2pm in the Project Room, artist York Chang will reveal what is real and what is not real about the Artist Actualization Services, a fictional Los Angeles performance art group that conceived of identity theft as a form of conceptual art, which was purportedly responsible for faking performances by Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelley, Chris Burden, Jerri Allyn and others. Chang will discuss his artistic practice of blurring fact and fiction as a strategy to explore the complex interactions between performance art, documentation, and memory, especially in relation to the rich history of the seminal performance art magazine HIGH PERFORMANCE.

All attendees to the artist talk will receive a limited edition copy of a new HIGH PERFORMANCE magazine, which Chang and collaborating artist Fernando Sanchez published on the occasion of this exhibition.
