TUESDAY, MARCH 24TH 7PM SCREENING

CHERYL DONEGAN - STOP ME IF YOU THINK YOU’VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE

(21 mins. Based on Andy Warhol’s film, ‘Nude Restraint’, 1967).

“I am fascinated with Viva's monologue in this film. I think I talk too

much, especially when I am nervous.  The art world makes me nervous.  I'm

not an actress and I wasn't sure what to say so Viva’s monologue seemed

perfect.  Warhol said her voice was the most mesmerizing and grating he had

ever heard.  So I cast myself as Viva, and my 9-year-old son as Taylor

Mead.  It's just Mom in the kitchen, serving up a hot dish of cool

leftovers.”

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25TH 11AM – 8PM

MICHAEL MAHALCHICK MAKES A MOVIE

JACOB ROBICHAUX – INVITATIONAL PERFORMANCES

During his solo show at Museum 52 in 2008 Jacob, whose interest in

performance is shaped by his childhood experiences as an amateur magician,

invited friends and artists to perform with one of the four floor-based

sculptures in the show. Participants randomly selected a sculpture with

which they were to perform.  Jacob invited others to explore his materials

and objects with the same compulsive drive to continually generate meaning

through activity and play. His invitational at Museum 52 will follow

similar lines of activity.

FRIDAY, MARCH 27TH 12PM – 9PM
