"In what can be seen as part of the 'relational' or social turn of art in the 1990s, Roy Villevoye moved from painting to a performative practice that foregrounded the social and economic structures from which the work emerges with rarely seen candour.
Rather than creating situations of seemingly carefree sociability under highly controlled (art-world) circumstances, Villevoye developed an art of exchange with people (and peoples) with whom relations are necessarily fraught with asymmetries and inequalities."
