John Waters, internationally recognized film and trouble maker, “invades” the Walker Art Center from June 11, 2011.
Pop culture provocateur John Waters raises a host of questions in Absentee Landlord, his devious and sometimes irreverent curatorial intervention in the exhibition Event Horizon. Imagining the galleries as rental apartments, Waters sets up relationships among nearly 80 “roommate” artworks that may be friendly or belligerent, unruly or reserved, supportive or indifferent. In exploring the tensions and connections among disparate works in the Walker’s wide-ranging collection, Waters imbues his new role as curator with his trademark blend of subversion and insight.
The exhibition will run through March 4, 2012.
