Returning Mau’s Call

Good news. Eastern Front Gallery is up and challenging Bruce Mau’s massively-hyped and masterfully-disorganized EPCOT AGO show with a rebuttal called Massive Response. The show, which opened yesterday, presents works by twenty-three artists, which run from the humorous to the mildly profound. The gallery is also presenting a series of lectures in tandem with the show. Tonight “curator Ron McKay delivers a provocative keynote address: “Spitting on a Hummer as Performance Art,” which will be followed by a screening of Soylent Green. Who knew Charlton Heston and Bruce Mau would ever find themselves in the same paragraph? And who we knew could spit on a Hummer and call ourselves Picasso?
It’s nice to see people engaging in dialogue, especially when the elephant in the room has become the featherless chicken in the gallery. Plus there’s a party on Saturday with free beer that will probably be priced reasonably. Respond.
