Portrait of Rudy Perez 4: Lingering in Spaces

In talking with Rudy Perez about his career’s performances over the last nine months, I noticed how many took place in art spaces. Of course, by the time I met Rudy in 1980, performances—dance and otherwise—were often hosted by galleries—large and small, for-profit and non. What follows are reminiscences of such productions during the years before I left Los Angeles for Denver in 2005, including bits from our conversations earlier this month.
