Excellent pictures Van Dog...
I tried watching the video. This guy in the suit was rambling mad and making no sense. I am sorry but I don't think we missed much. Good concept, poor execution.
Thanks Tony.Hey Max, that was the Ursonate of Kurt Schwitters, first published 1932. If you don't appreciate art, you obviously aren't trying hard enough.But seriously the event was open to anyone who wanted to perform - almost anything, so maybe you'll stop by next month and regale us with adventure filled traveling stories.
Thanks for sticking up for Andy, and for poor Schwitters, Vandog. First the Nazis gave him hell, then the English, and now the Americans! ;-)A celebrated rendition of the Ursonate that was included in the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art's "Chicago, 1945-1995" 50-year retrospective, we are very proud to host this series of performances by Andy Laties. Certainly a 45-minute Dada sound poem isn't for everyone, however for those with a taste for the avant-garde, this audience participation version is a rare treat.
Hi Rebecca, You and Max actually share a lot of political sensibilities, if differing tastes in art. You may have already met at the New Years gala.
Interesting stuff! I hate to say I have to agree with Max. The gentlemen in the suit may be to over the top for myself. I can understand how people could appreciate his form of expression though. To each thier own. I really like the painting in the background! Great dynamics. Thanks for the post.
He may have been mumbling incomprehensible gibberish, but I'm glad that this kind of performance art is being made in Holyoke...that's way more important that whether I get it or not!
Max would not know art if it walked up and bit him in the face.
