Please join us for a virtual panel discussion with the artists on Tuesday, March 9, 5:30 p.m. Performance anxiety describes fear of acting in front of a group.

This endless exhibition of the self generates communication without community: we are always broadcasting to one another, but the messages are too narcissistic to form meaningful bonds.
