"Beauty" is spandex on a perfectly toned thigh, perspiration on an upper lip, sweaty underarms of live artists in action. A fitness club, a performance venue, and an art museum are all spaces of objects and subjects of beauty. All share the promise that their institution might help us transcend the physical to the ethereal. We sweat, we critique, we long to be a part of these institutions of absolute beauty.
