Peter Reder is a performance artist from the U.K. who has developed Guided Tour, a site-specific performance where the audience will be led behind the scenes of the Carnegie Museums after hours. It’s a tourist experience for the disenchanted, a quiet interrogation of the notion of the authentic and our thirst for the original. Guided Tour was premiered at McEwan Hall at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2005, and has since been presented at the Tretyakov Gallery Moscow, the Coliseum (Bragadiru Palace), Bucharest, and the National Museum of Singapore.

Tickets: $20/ $10 Student

“It’s a tourist outing for deconstructionists”
The Scotsman
There’s so much history around, so many books, TV programs,
museums, heritage sites, there’s no space left for the present.
Or was it the other way round, it’s all present, without any past?
(Guided Tour, final chapter)
Presented in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts.
