Mickey Western "Gringolandia"

Honey Space

This event has ended.

Gringolandia is an installation, saloon, and full-sensory performance space created by Mickey Western. The title of the exhibition references America, while indicating, simultaneously, a fundamentally outsider perspective. The conceptual framework for the exhibition is built upon the mythos of the Universal Outlaw- that perennial character in American culture who exists on the margins of mainstream, polite society: the poets, preachers and vigilantes whose moral codes have been determined by an internal value system free from the laws of the state.

During the course of the exhibition Mickey will inhabit the space and interact with visitors passing through. Handheld audio tours of the exhibition will be available. A full calendar of events, readings and performances will be released with the first edition of the Chelsea Gonzo, and posted on the gallery's website whenever we recover from the opening party, with additions to the calendar coming in all the time. Regular evening programming will include a Thursday Saloon Salon, and a Saturday Speakeasy Saloon.



from October 18, 2008 to November 22, 2008

Opening Reception on 2008-10-18 from 19:30
