Around the Coyote Fall Arts Festival
Plumbers Hall, 1340 W Washington

Green Lantern Gallery is pleased to present “Subprime,” a 3-day
busking* installation at the Around the Coyote Fall Arts Festival, for
which the main structural element is– a painting/mobile stage, which
is the subject of an accompanying video piece, and the platform for
the scheduled artists’ performances and exhibitions. The term
‘subprime’ is engendered with the belief that certain communities
represent a lower order.  Taking this for granted, the stage is that
spot in town reserved for the sad and lowly, where through a
performance, a video, or an art object, visual and aural pleasure is
proffered to the audience, with the hope of accruing gratuity(-ies).

* Busking is the practice of performing in public places for tips and
gratuities.

Subprime is a video by Young Joon Kwak, which explores the connection
between a painting/stage on casters, and Sally Struthers.

ON SUNDAY

Hey Fox!!: A multi-media performance.
Tessa Siddle is proud to premier a new performance at the Green
Lantern Booth at the Around the Coyote Fall Festival, this Sunday,
October the 19th. “Hey Fox!!,” seeks to blur the line between the
personification of animals and the de-personification of the artist by
performing legendary animal behaviors whilst confessing personal and
animal desires through live video feeds.

Donations go directly to the artist.
