Turning the Lights Out

There's an interesting conversation going on over at WNYC's Performance Club sight about an incident that took place at P.S. 1 on Saturday when a performance artist was censored by the art gallery, which chose to turn the lights out during her performance.

Of course any punches thrown at P.S.1 were purely metaphorical.
