Here's your Art Quiz. . .
While spending an entertaining afternoon at the Andy Warhol Museum the other day I encountered this object in The Downtown Show: The New York Art Scene 1974 - 84. Anyone recognize it? It's sort of a leftover bit from a well known performance piece. This particular artifact points to the challenge that performance art poses to collectors - what do you buy after the performance? What's there to collect?
The whole show seemed to swing somewhere between art and documentation of the "scene", so this seems like a nice piece to highlight. Should the mystery object not be identified in the comments I'll fill you in somewhere down the road. . .
