Opening reception May 14th, 7 – 10 pm
A limited collection of self-improvement books was provided in a booth for those brave enough to read self-help in a public space. Is it a badge of shame or a proudly displayed banner to admit that you are curious for someone else’s answers? The booth was equipped with a hidden camera to record the reactions of random pedestrians from a book’s point of view.
The performance on May 14, 2011 is our response to the reaction of those that crossed our paths on April 16, 2011 and April 17, 2011 at The Brewery ArtWalk when self-helping ourselves.
MUC was formed in 2009 when Christina Pierson, Victoria Tao, and Yoshie Sakai decided to seriously not take themselves seriously.
