Here's a short list of some of the artists that came up in our discussion last night--I hate talking about people and then forgetting their names so I just wanted to put them up so you can follow up and do some research if you want to!
Mark Dion (cabinets of curiosity, seattle vivarium)
Marina Abramovic (great wall walk, her partner's name was Ulay)
Rirkrit Tiravanija (thai dinners in galleries)
please post if you can think of some more artists that have come up!
