Alisha Kerlin holds up a white 3D print of a 2,000-year-old Mesoamerican animal sculpture like a proud mom at a soccer game. “I have a very intimate relationship with this collection,” she beams. For the duration of our museum tour, she carries the replica around, clutching it under her arm like a football. “I didn’t realize his toe was broken,” she says, as if she should have traveled back in time 2 millennia to stop the damage. If she could, she would.

Someone in the impromptu barbershop quartet jokes about performance art being “all bullshit,” setting off a rumble of laughter in an audience of artists, performers, art lovers, and writers, all familiar with the conflicted nature of the medium. It’s another evening of RADAR, a new, regular Downtown performance event. Frequently not as palatable as more traditional painting and sculpture, nor easily defined or understood, performance art can be a difficult medium to establish in a local art community, though it’s been a fixture in some cities for years. Still, it’s natural that an art movement such as this would grow in the shadow of the Strip — and it feels long overdue.

The Barrick Museum’s lively Jubilation Inflation is a show about the body—your body. Your impossible stillness and irrepressible movement, your dutiful lungs, your eyes irresistibly drawn to a rolling orange, your ears deciphering a modulation that you can’t quite place. Is it the sound of wind streaming through leaves? Frying eggs?

“Do you get vertigo?” the curator of the exhibition asks me as she pulls open the Velcro seam of the inflated blob. Inside, the nylon fabric lifts around me, plumped by an air stream pumped in near the floor. She thinks of this work as a feminist James Turrell—maybe she has in mind his Aten Reign (2013)—an expansive environment, like a womb, but lightweight and portable. She says, “We’ve been calling them vessels.”

Who could blame the casual viewer for thinking In Process is about how graffiti and street art meet skating culture in a retinal cataclysm? Casual viewer, you are right! Schoultz skids right out of the California skater scene, comic books stuffed in the backpack of youth along with guerilla muralist gear. His tricks are just getting started.
