Performance Documentation: Body Acts

If you're going to drag yourself through paint, don a doll mask or smash TVs in the name of performance art, you might as well tape it. Performance Documentation: Body Acts documents some of the first folks to make names for themselves filming this style of art. Aurora Picture Show will present the hour-long movie, which features the performance work of seminal artists like Vito Acconci and Tatsuo Kawaguchi. 8 p.m. Houston Center for Photography, 1441 West Alabama. For information, visit www.aurorapictureshow.org. $7.
