A little over a month ago the Texas Theatre hosted a performance art film screening featuring documented works by Douglas Davis, Joesph Bueys, Nam Jun Paik, Artur Barrio and others. This museum quality event was an additional facet of the arts attack known as the Dallas Biennial 2012, or DB12 (not to be confused with the Dallas Contemporary’s Dallas Biennale). Paying out of pocket and negotiating permissions rights to display several art films, Stephen Lapthisophon, Michael Mazurek, Jesse Morgan Barnett, and CJ Davis have provided an insightful, educational experience from which to reconsider not only art today, but how quirky, exciting and intense it was 35 years ago.
