MAY DAY : PIRATE UTOPIA

MAY DAY : PIRATE UTOPIA
2nd Anarchist Art Fair
Curated by Anonymous
May 7 – June 9, 2013
Opening Reception: May 7th, 7-10pm
Peanut Underground is proud and excited to present our second annual May Day show. A new year, a new ship, a new course plotted to the East: a piratical transgression of art and culture, a temporary autonomous zone, a safe harbor to engage in free dialogue and an open exchange of ideas. This spring, we overthrow the patriarchal hegemony and celebrate the pirate utopia.
Apostates, traitors, degenerates, heretics, riot grrrls, dreamers, dissidents, artists, refugees and desperados have all discovered our underground harbor. For the past year, they have arrived with gifts and ideas collected from the four corners of the world, performing lustrations, and leaving traces and artifacts for future cultures.
Last year, we said that we remembered in our collective minds something different. That's why we went underground to create our shelter, where we worked to build the new. Now, we are celebrating our ninth exhibit, still mixing established luminaries with emerging talent.
X marks the spot at the crossroads of infinity.
This year the fair includes work by Amy Kurzweil, Anton Lefevre, Allison Williams, Banksy, Betty Tompkins, Brett Casper, Carolee Schneemann, Colette, {dNASAb}, Duke and Dutches, FEMEN, Francesca Woodman, Gary Indiana, Gregory de la Haba, Heide Hatry, Hitomi Mochizuki, Julian Kliner, Katerina Skassi, Katie Peyton, Lee Wells, LG White, Lorna Simpson, Lydia Venieri, Magdalena Marcenaro, Marjan Moghaddam, Mark Kostabi, Michael Ricardo Andreev, Nico Smith, Peter Fend, Paul Kostabi, Pierrot, Rebecca Nison, Saskia Hahn, Savannah Spirit, Simone Gad, Stay High 149, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara and more.
Special projects curated by Myriam Vanneschi, featuring new media installations by Leila Feuer, Alexandra Gorczynski and Angela Washko.
We still miss the Garden of Eden and walking around naked. This is not a postpostpostpost feminist show, but we do love the Goddess of New York. Don’t fuck with us or we will kill you with kindness.
Kiss kiss!!
While we’re on the topic of love, we’d like to thank the artists, curators, writers and patrons who have helped to make this dream a reality.

Leila Feuer’s Intertown , an interactive installation, presents a civilization on the brink of extinction. Scientists have bought time for the human race by blocking out the sun and replacing it with a cursor. As the constant reminder of extinction looms, citizens retreat to both religion and hedonism, questioning whether consciousness lives on.
