Karaoking the Museum

Added on by Zachary Gough.

Karaoking the Museum uses the form of popular songs to tell the material and social history of art through the participatory form of karaoke. Popular songs have been paired with artworks in the Portland Art Museum and have had their lyrics altered to reveal the context in which the artworks were made.
