Exploring Performance Art

If a man pees into a cup, then drinks his own pee... is that art?  It certainly was last week at the Biennale 2012, a local performance art exhibition downtown.  We talk with local artists (including a man who painted while wearing a gorilla suit) about how performance art is evolving, and what really counts as art.
