This gesture by SFMOMA points to larger issues about exhibiting performance retrospectives that otherwise run largely under the surface of “We Are Here”: What it means to experience the exhibition as a set of performances versus installations; and whether the institution is responsible for animating or recreating this kind of work in order to fully convey it to an audience who may otherwise see these performances as mere documentation of things that happened years ago, perhaps far away.
