Video Preview: Shack Up with Shag x Ryden x Malony and MoreJuxtapoz // Friday, 11 Jun 2010
Abandoning the rules of the art market and pressure to create saleable work, art shacks allow the artists to create an experiential environment, narrowing the distinction between art and function, object and environment. Immerse yourself in 30 different worlds created by such artists as Don Ed Hardy, Shag, George Herms, Paul Frank, Marion Peck, and Mark Ryden, among others. Explore surf shacks, tattoo huts, retro shanties and more.
Many shacks will be enterable, and some will include interactive components such as music and film. Don Ed Hardy’s Tattoo Hut will feature an activated tattoo machine.
The Opening night party on Saturday, June 12, 2010 will offer fans a live DJ, photo booth, cash bar, food truck, and the opportunity to meet the participating artists. Kenny Scharf's trailer shack will be parked at the Museum and available for viewing this one night only.
