Performance Art Invitational, LIVE ACTION @ White Flag Projects - STL, MO
Curated by Mike Schuh, Registrar - Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis

Our performance consisted of Nosey Parker, a panel knowledgable in our diverse works, a prarie schooner pulled by "Bonnie" the horse and a live audience encouraged to participate. Brett and I started by lecturing on the history of our collaborative projects. Our goal was to reach into the notion of the American West, it's history, populace integration and re-interpretation through Modernism and Post Modernism Art. Sparked by a trip to Warrensburg, MO, a bottle of Jamieson, populace cowboy attire and a Darth Vader helmet....we positioned our conceptual evolution along the historical and cultural milestones of the American West. We performed a lecture containing key figures of the literal and fictional west; placing Nosey Parker into an evolved composite of the western paradigm through the act of performance and reference. Audience participation was key in that it created unexpected discourse helping to push Nosey Parker further into the frontier.
