On Friday, November 12, 2010 the cyberSurreal, interdisciplinary and immersive exhibit-event & experience Provocative Objects: the extradition opened up our little box once known as Patricia Doran Gallery at Massachusetts College of Art and Design to fellow artists, designers, gallerygoers and provocateurs for an evening of wild creative abandon and cyberSurreal wonderment.

And don’t forget … if its not painstakingly obvious in the above description, on the postcards, posters, emails, tweets, Facebook brand extensions or any other little bits of PO sprinkled around the net + on MassArt’s campus … well, we’re gonna have

That’s right … we’ll have a scrumptous little smørgasborg of foodie consumptables accompanied by some tasty liquids to wash that sh!t down. By all means, don’t forget that this is an art show … but we aims ta keep the people happy ‘n’ healthy, too.

We are currently accepting informal but professional calls for work and participation for Provocative Objects. To submit a proposal, contact lou suSi via email at cheese at hotsects dot com. Here is the short, original email-delivered description of the show & the sort of work we’re looking to inspire & include:

We are looking for pieces that instigate the viewer-participant-gallerygoer or blur the line and leave the audience wondering. Physical traditional art objects — dynamic prototypes — video, performative and conceptual work — we’re looking to collect an eclectic body of work to provoke viewer-participant exploration, thought, discussion and interaction. There will be a vaguely-defined ‘stageSpace’ for certain event-related ‘performances’ throughout the evening as well as numerous ‘objects’ or installations.


For more information, feel free to call lou at 617.750.2922 or email cheese at hotsects dot com. More information to follow at this page and other social web & ‘out there’ augmented informational destinations.

We hope to see you there!
