Second Front performance at Ars Virtua opening 5th Jan 07

This post was first posted at Virtual Artists Alliance 6. January 2007

Last night JC Fremonts lovely exhibition "Imaging Place SL: The U.S./Mexico Border." opened at the Ars Virtua gallery. (See extensive interview with JC Fremont in Slate Magazine here.)But I must say the exhibition was overshined by the rather spectacular performance by the Second Front group.

Second Front is the first dedicated performance art group in Second Life. To officially open JC Fremont's Installation at Ars Virtua, Second Front will be creating a realtime interpretive and site-specific performance based on JC Fremont's theme 'Borders' to compliment "Imaging Place SL: The U.S./Mexico Border."
The perfomance lasted about half an hour or so. See pictures below.
Behind this group is the reallife Vancouver-based group The Western Front. If you missed last nights performance or happened to be there and like it, the next perfomances are not far away; during a festival called Art's Birthday 2007 from January 14 - 20, 2007, they are going to have different things going on online and I think they said a new SL-performance the 17th...
