A collaboration of body painter extraordinaire Alexa Meade and performance artist Sheila Vand, involving the before-mentioned body painting work before Vand lies in a pool of milk. Both in still and video images, this is a particularly interesting collaboration, where the subject comes to life in a fluid "still-life."

This weekend in Portland, the puppet collective by the name of Nightshade will be teaming up with Brooklyn-based band, Japanther, for three days and five shows of collaborative performance.

Alexa Meade has long been a subject of our fascination and awe, as she transforms live models into living paintings in both gallery and performance settings. She brings paintings to life, so to speak. Tonight, June 6, at the National Portrait Gallery Museum in Washington, DC, Meade will create a pair of portraits with live models—one in a black-and-white scene and a second on a similar, but full-color set, with viewers being able to watch and interact with the process.

'The Bosom Ballet is a performance in which I stretch, pinch, squeeze, twist, rock, roll, and jiggle my breasts to music, usually “The Blue Danube Waltz,” under a pink spotlight.

Maybe it is the choice of good color, or bright colors, but these project, Bodies in Urban Spaces (from a few years back), is interesting in the contrast of gray urban palettes and bright colored contemporary fashion. And people in odd shapes in odd places.
