Venue: la Esquina / 1000 W. 25th St / Kansas City, MO 64108
Tickets: Free, suggested donation $5-$10
Details: Dumpster-diving their way across mid-America, this multi-disciplinary tag team of artists will present responsive and relational performances, including body art, found objects, industrial noise music, and “low-brow” consumer waste (American cheese, stale donuts, hot glue, and wax). Reacting to the economic plight of artists working today, “Let’s Make a Mess” includes work that desperately and auto-poetically poses a politics that embraces non-dominant schemes for value, culture, and reality at large.
Additional Performing Artists: Brian McCorkle, Esther Neff, Valerie Kuehne, David Greiss, and Edward Sharp. The evening will also feature opening and closing performances by the Kansas City experimental music/performance collaboration outfit C.A.S.H.E.D., composed of Timothy Amundson (aka Timothy Abysmall) & Drew Roth (aka Piper Harrow).
