Karen Finley
The Reality Shows
The Reality Shows takes us through the past ten years, with renowned performance artist Karen Finley as our guide. By embodying and reimagining larger-than-life public figures in her performances, Finley helps us make sense of the political trauma and cultural chaos we’ve witnessed during the first decade of the new century. Liza Minelli becomes every New Yorker in the wake of 9/11, former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has a Freudian revelation, and Jackie O works through her post-traumatic stress as the Obamas become America’s First Family. Don’t miss an electrifying night of performance by one of America’s most provocative artists.
