Assed Out and the Mini Dramas @ Queens Nails ProjectJuxtapoz // Friday, 10 Feb 2012
From what we gather, Assed Out and the Mini Dramas is a collaborative conceptual art piece that will transform Queens Nails Project into an experimental pool hall. Hey, we have some pool talent at Juxtapoz! Created by local artists Guy Overfelt and Andrew McClintock who both graduated from SFAI. The show is so cleverly described as, “This project, like much conceptual art...what you describe is not the sort of collaborative project that can be intelligently written about, even briefly, without seeing..." So, guess you have to see for yourself. The opening is tonight February 10, 2012 in San Francisco. Check it out!
There will be a variety of music events weekly through the shows duration curated by Tyson Vogel of Two Gallants, including a staging performance of “Pool Hustle” by Bay Area legendary conceptual artist Paul Kos.
