THE TALENT SHOW / the Henry


Do you like getting exploited to make art? Then you're going to love the Henry's latest exhibition, The Talent Show, featuring work by Stanley Brouwn, Chris Burden, Sophie Calle, Peter Campus, Graciela Carnevale, Phil Collins, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Tehching Hsieh, David Lamelas, Piero Manzoni, Adrian Piper, Amie Siegel, John Smith, Andy Warhol, Gillian Wearing, Hannah Wilke, Shizuka Yokomizo, Carey Young.

Works exhibited blur the lines between audience and artists. In an era of Facebook, reality tv and public living, this doesn't seem unusual but some of the work dates back to the late 60s.
