2013NR28 min

Good/Bad Art Collective’s CURTAINS is part one-night-event, part exhibition, and part television broadcast exploring notions of viewership and interaction. In the weeks leading up to the project’s opening event, the collective will produce a 28-minute infomercial, filmed in a newly created television studio on a vacant floor of Bryan Tower, a high-rise located in downtown Dallas, Texas. At the one-night opening event on Saturday, October 19, 2013, attendees will be given the opportunity to participate in the filming of select portions of the infomercial. Post-event, visitors will be able to walk the space in which the infomercial was filmed seeing the sculptural elements used as props during the opening, as well as view select edits of video documenting the one-night event. In conjunction with the exhibition, the finished infomercial will be broadcast on late night and early morning television time slots in local, regional, and national markets.

BACKGROUND

Good/Bad Art Collective is a Denton, Texas based group of artists that created well over 250 events in Texas and New York from 1993–2001. Good/Bad’s CURTAINS project will be the first major project created by the group in more than 10 years, and coincides with the 20th anniversary of the group. Throughout its production over 140 artists and creatives were active members of the collective, developing unique one-night events of art, music, and film at a breakneck pace, resulting in an expansive output that was often interactive, humorous, and thought-provoking.
