THE LIVING INSTALLATIONxxx Alice In Wonderland (A Michael Alan event)

From the id of our friend Michael Alan...

11 YEAR SHOW—
Saturday June 21st—9HOUR-9bodies

Announcing the return of Michael Alan’s “Living Installation”. Join us for “Alice in Wonderland”, a special 9 hour birthday extravaganza for Michael, with 9 models and a live musical soundscape by Michael Alan and Tim Love Lee. The event will take place in a 3000 square foot space at Succulent Studios, with drinks, coffee and food. Get away, escape New York for a day, join in the art happening of the year. This is the closing of the Installation Group show!

(To order advance tickets go to: http://www.michaelalanart.com/art/upcoming-projects/)

Watch time speed up and slow down as 9 bodies, each acting in their own area without voice, props or interaction will demonstrate their version of Alice in Wonderland. Each model will be placed on top of a cube, and given a small space to work in the nude. Using their flesh and movement they will provide a profound people watching experience, demonstrating their strength of character and the will to survive. Alan will move from cube to cube adorning their flesh with a linking color of grey, decorating the their bodies with flowers and fabric and turning each performer into a living sculpture similar to Alan’s prolific, colorful paintings.

In Alice in Wonderland, Alice is tested to the limit of her endurance. All 9 Alices in Alan’s installation will face a similar search for survival and beauty in the quest for artistic freedom. The viewers and experancers will also be tested and challenged to leave their lives behind. This is not a drawing class, this is not a performance, this is not a movie, this is not a gallery opening, this is a happening where you leave your life for nine hours and become a part of a living memory. You may draw, you may dance, but you must leave art bullshit expectations at home.

This is a special 11 year anniversary happening hosted by Michael Kronenberg, Drawmania, and Eric Torrez.

The Living Installation is a unique community project that has manifested itself for 11 years, transforming a wide variety of spaces such as the New Museum and Chelsea Art museum, Kenny Scharf’s cosmic cavern, the Whitney Museum, Gasser Grunert Gallery, Teatro Iatti , ABC No Rio and the Dumbo Arts Festival.

The Living Installation has provided artists and spectators a singular opportunity to experience the flow of raw creativity and stimulates the creative process by providing sensory nourishment to all the senses simultaneously.

The Living Installation/Drawathon has created a long lasting artistic community where many individuals have formed lasting connections in an environment of communal creativity and shared inspiration and experience. This event encapsulates all elements of the artistic experience and causes them to unfold in an extended moment, concentrating and expanding time . Prepare to enter a mesmerizing and soul expanding mindscape that is the unique New York City event.

There is nothing else like the Living Installation, it has its own place on the art map in New York city, Why? Where are you going to see a space transformed, into a drug free, merry, magical victory over the mundane, where all are welcome. Not since Andy Wahol's Factory has there been a happening this intense and magical.

Michael Alan’s positive vision and desire to continue the crazy art magic that is so hard to find in today’s New York will feed your eyes and expand your consciousness in a profoundly moving way.
