Butt in Buttons


Butt-ins, 2008

Performed as a simple intervention into the Performance Art Wedding Series: Green Wedding of porn-star-turned-performance-artist Annie Sprinkle and her life partner, Elizabeth Stevens. The wedding was the culminating activity of a conference on intervention and social art practice held at UC Santa Cruz. The themes of the wedding included love, compassion, and heart. During the wedding and reception, guests were offered a selection of several hundred love buttons from inside the lapels of Gregory Sale’s green dinner jacket. He then asked permission to pin their selection of one or more buttons to their clothing.
