Literature on performance art is becoming more plentiful, but few up-to-date histories exist. Part of the problem is the nature of this kind of art. Its enticement stems from the general lack of boundaries, but this same fluidity makes harnessing it to a simple text difficult. Building from a base of photographic stills of works now considered classics, Goldberg, former curator of the Kitchen Center for Video, Music, and Performance, has tackled this problem admirably. Goldberg writes about performance art from direct experience?she was involved with it from the beginning?and her lucid essays offer just enough theory to help the reader grasp performance art's impact within the context of the entire century. Goldberg incorporates dance, music, and other art forms from the same period. Essential for its seriousness, clarity, and illustrations, her her work will no doubt be the most important text on this subject for quite a while. Recommended for all art, academic, and large public libraries.?Susan M. Olcott, Columbus Coll. of Art & Design, OH
