Andrea Fraser’s 1991 performance May I Help You? explores the relationship between cultural consumption and social class. During a 15-minute monologue, the performer shifts through six voices representing different perspectives on art. May I Help You? was originally performed at American Fine Arts Co. in New York City by actors posing as gallery staff in an exhibition of Allan McCollum’s Plaster Surrogates. Transposing the work to the galleries housing Take It or Leave It, in which works by both Fraser and McCollum are featured, Fraser performs continuously over the course of two hours.
In conjunction with Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology.
