Posted by lpcrazygirl (similar posts by others) – I would like to read something about your glorious excess dies art show or rather if you will make a glorious excess born/dies art show in another country like maybe germany. That would be amazing and I think that many fans will go and see your art show, because it’s incredible!
M: Sorry for the late response on this / these…I’m glad you guys asked about the art show. My GLORIOUS EXCESS DIES art show is returning to Los Angeles on August 29th! It opens at the Japanese American National Museum, and stays open from August 30th to October 4th. There will be 17 new pieces, plus a new video documentary. I will be attending the opening, available for autographs if you’re interested 🙂 The money from the show, as usual, goes to charity (MFR, ACCD, JANM).
Glorious Excess is about obsession with celebrity culture, consumer addiction, and fascination with excess. The show follows a nameless celebrity character as he indulges in the sex, drugs, and rock n roll lifestyle. In this show, he grows to the limits of his fame, reveling without moderation in the excesses of modern celebrity until he implodes.
I’m also pleased to announce there will be a new book released with the show. It’s over 120 pages long, and covers the entire Glorious Excess experience, in text and pictures. Not just a “making of” piece; the book elaborates on the thoughts behind the show, with stories about how my ideas and thoughts on the subject came to be. It’s the first time I’ve been able to properly sum us the GLXS experience. More info to come…
