Barbara T. Smith’s Final Performance Art Piece, 2012

Barbara T. Smith

Just prior to retirement, pioneering performance artist Barbara T. Smith's gave a final performance piece for the women's crisis support group A Window Between Worlds.

This deeply moving work addresses the role that women must often take in society. The video capture documents the audience's revelations & inspirations in experiencing this challenging and interactive work. Some of the participating audience members were themselves abused women in destructive relationships, which they have either overcome or were in the process of overcoming.

The performance and video installation was held at SPARC Gallery and Art Center in 2012. EZTV's Kate Johnson was commissioned to create the documentation video of the event.
