Best of these have to be Gavin Butt's piece on Larry Rivers' enactment of camp sensibility and Phelan's unveiling of Warhol's accumulated American deaths. Butt and Phelan go a long way to indicating what a genuinely new art history might feel like, performing their subject from the inside in a generous identification that nevertheless resists predictable positions.' - Mark Harris, Art Monthly

'I found ... the articles included in Performing the Body/Performing theText compelling.' - Jennie Klein, A Journal of Performance and Art
