"Temporal” Time Based Performance Art

"Art is Business" 
Alan Emerson Hicks, steps out with a high profile as he arrives at the Bronzeville Artist Lofts.  He is the Phantom Gallery Chicago Loft Gallery curator, and resident artist of Emerson Studio, located at 440 E. 47th Street, Room #205, Chicago IL  60653.


performance art is a performance presented to an audience, traditionally interdisciplinary. Performance may be either scripted or unscripted, random or carefully orchestrated; spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned with or without audience participation. The performance can be live or via media; the performer can be present or absent. It can be any situation that involves four basic elements: time, space, the performer's body, or presence in a medium, and a relationship between performer and audience. Performance art can happen anywhere, in any venue or setting and for any length of time. The actions of an individual or a group at a particular place and in a particular time constitute the work.
