Bill T. Jones Photos at YBCA

Walking by the YBCA last I week, I noticed a sign announcing free admission. Having a few spare minutes, I went in. Only the small upstairs part of the museum was open, where there is an exhibit of artifacts related to collaborations between dancer & choreographer Bill T. Jones & other artists. There's not much to see, but there is an arresting set of 5 larger-than-life photos by Tseng Kwong Chi of Jones posing in a body painting by Keith Haring.

Unfortunately you can view them only up close or from the staircase across the lobby, but they communicate a sense of motion & charge better than any of the videos in the exhibit.
