About the Project

Art in the Anchorage 8 was an eclectic grouping of performances and artwork loosely based around the complex theme of pain and suffering.


Works included: pH by Dumb Type, which was a multimedia performance exploring uncharted “post-histories;” W. Va. Schizophrenic Blues, by Linda Carmella Sibio, which took as its subject the artist’s schizophrenic mother; Sick, by Bob Flanagan, a piece that addressed a sexually masochist artist who has cystic fibrosis and ritualizes pain; and a performance by Black Market International, which explored themes such as existence and social relations.
