Family Fiesta: Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
  • October 22, 2014.

    Located in beautiful Bentonville, Arkansas, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art was the host of the inaugural Family Fiesta performance. Visitors entering the Museum were greeted by a full on birthday bash.

    Family Fiesta consists of the artist’s family, food, drinks, and music. In this performance, the public is encouraged to participate in the celebration firsthand by engaging in games, dances, music, cuisine, and piñata time—all put on by Justin and his family.

    In Family Fiesta the event is taken out of its traditional context (a cookout in a backyard or a park) to unconventional locations, seeking to highlight people’s expectations of a fiesta and, at the same time, dismantling notions of location and institutional inclusion.
