Ryder performed his comedic art action Work/Play: Rhetoric & Utility as part of an evening of programming at the Nasher. Drawing inspiration from the political humor of Kathryn Andrews work on display at the Nasher, Ryder enacts 2 rolls with one hand tied behind his back, showcasing the relative ease and difficulty between the trick and the chore.

Videographer: Colette Copeland
