Soup & Tart was a marathon performance soiree organized by multimedia artist Jean Dupuy in which he invited over 30 downtown artists, musicians, and filmmakers to each give a two-minute performance. The audience was first served a homemade dinner of soup, bread, and wine, which was followed by the performance "menu" and then special apple tarts prepared on the spot by Dupuy himself. Artists included Anne Tardos, Anthony McCall, Brayne Bliss, Brendon Atkinson, Carolee Schneeman, Charlemagne Palestine, Charles Atlas, David Warrilow, Deedee Halleck, Diego Cortez, Donald Monroe, Donald Moscatello, Gene Highstein, Geoff Hendricks, Gianfranco Mantegna, Gordon Matta-Clark, Hannah Wilke, Joan Jonas, Joan Schwartz, Joanne Akalaitis, Jon Gibson, Kate Parker, Laurie Anderson, Lisbeth Marano, Nam June Paik, Nancy Topf, Olga Kluver, Philip Glass, Richard Landry, Richard Serra, Robert Breer, Scott Billingsley, Shigeko Kuboto, Suzanne Harris, Sylvia Whitman, Tina Girouard, and Yvonne Rainer.
