Michael Alan | LAST LIVING INSTALLATION?
Michael Alan is known for his live performances, for which he coined the names Living Installation. He just did his last show at ABC No Rio, the history art collective in the Lower East Side. Alan notes that ABC No Rio was the place where his Living Installations were able to grow and flourish. As Gothamist explains, Alan “methodically applied just about every incarnation of paint, glue, paper, fabric and to the otherwise nude human instruments of his Living Installation.” Throughout the show he strategically moved around the room, altering his subjects. This was Alan’s last show at ABC No Rio because the 30 year-old collective may be demolished as close as May for a new building. To learn more click: Whitehot Magazine [HERE], Bomb Blog [HERE].
