Gaffy at Peepshow, coming up Feb 26th!
PEEPSHOW 2011: It’s Complicated
is the fourth edition of Squeaky Wheel’s high-energy fundraising art
party and extravaganza, to be held at the DNIPRO Ukrainian Center on
Saturday, February 26th, 2011. The event boasts a wide array of
entertainment, from curated artist installations, videos, and
performances to a fancy art auction and the opportunity for everyone to
participate in an evening-long performance of fun while tackling a
dense equation of questions, parameters, and answers that yield a
deafening blank stare when TMI (Too Much Information!!!) has been
revealed. Whether it’s the way that slick-looking minimalist
masterpiece runs from a tangled, incomprehensible mess of hidden wires
or the reason your lover won’t let you hold their hand in public, we
understand – IT’S COMPLICATED!
Artists of all kinds (media, installation, sculpture, performance)
were invited to interpret this year’s theme – an often-apologetic
preface when entering hearty deliberations about world politics,
globalization or economic policies; a notorious description for
defending the inherently complex dynamics of personal relationships,
gender, or sexuality; and sometimes the dreaded top notch of a
difficulty rating system for various “how-to’s” in the realm of vegan
cooking, furniture assembly, or home-improvement. ***
Stay tuned for the complete list of over 30 artists and performers that
will take over all three floors of the beautiful DNIPRO Ukrainian
Center. There will be live music, burlesque troupes, belly dancing and
so much more - We can't wait to share what we have in store for you! ***
