Out O' Actions

Mike Kelley and Paul McCarthy
1998, 4:25 min, color, sound

Out O' Actions documents Kelley and McCarthy's preliminary activities in organizing a project for the Visitor's Gallery of the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles during the inaugural exhibition of "Out of Actions: Between Performance and the Object 1949-1979." Mimicking the editing structure of Kurt Kren's documentation of Otto Muehl's action Mama und Papa (1964), the documentation of Kelley and McCarthy's curatorial preparations is presented as performative activity itself.

Camera: Catherine Sullivan, Damon McCarthy. Editor: Catherine Sullivan.
