Singing at the Smithsonian

Singing at the Smithsonian
The Smithsonian has bought its first piece of performance art. Which means that if you visit the Hirshhorn’s sculpture garden you may find that a young woman will suddenly start singing while following you around.



The performance piece, titled This You, is the creation of Tino Sehgal, though he doesn't perform it. There are four women who do that, in shifts.



Sometimes the performers will abruptly stop singing in order to state the title of the performance piece: “This You, Tino Sehgal, 2006.” And then they'll start singing again.
