Featuring:
Vito Acconci
Joseph Beuys

Acting as a supplement, rather than an alternative to the gender biased trope, currently circulating the Vegas scene, ‘Cherry Boys’ pays homage to a handful of powerful, intelligent ‘people’ who have influenced contemporary art, as we know it today.

Video screening hosted by Artist Michael Barrett.
December 5th, 2013, 7-10pm

“I pity the fool that doesn’t come to this important exhibition featuring ten pirated videos from some of the most passionate figures in art history” – Mr. T

“The ‘Boys’ show is terrific: open, thought-provoking, diverse, sensual, intelligent and fun. Cowboy Curtis and I love it” – Paul Reubens

“These are “individuals” who have chaired departments, directed museums and raised families. They are adept with power tools and can effortlessly segway from talking politics to passions. They share a resilience associated with the western spirit. These Cherry Boys know how to get it done…OH!!!“ – Andrew Dice Clay

The Traveling Miracle Show

Traveling Miracle Show

Traveling Miracle Show

 

First Stop For The Traveling Miracle Show…

From the heart of a miraculous metropolis in the desert, comes a group of artists producing modern-day marvels. The Traveling Miracle Show doesn’t claim to offer a cure-all elixir for rheumatism, baldness & bad breath, but it does promise an evening of astonishing spectacle and miraculous events. The intrepid viewer may encounter mystical beasts, a human cactus, melancholic black bile, an infinite fountain of alcohol, the root of good and evil, and a ‘sin-eating’ delicacy.

This one-night art installation and performance event will be held at the new experimental art venue Momas and Dadas Project House by the 18b sign on Casino Center in the heart of the Arts District. The Las-Vegas-based artists participating in the first Traveling Miracle event have established reputations in the fields of video, performance and installation. They are Artist Michael Barrett, Nathan Coté, Matthew Couper, Brent Holmes, Jenessa Kenway, JK Russ and Jevijoe Vitug.

With the assistance of a funding grant from the Nevada Arts Council, the artists will be taking The Traveling Miracle Show on the road in Nevada, with a second event scheduled for Reno Art Works in mid-April.
