“This is the true story of seven strangers picked to live in a house and have their lives taped. Find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.”
Okay, so maybe this is the story of two people who live together and their five other friends who live relatively nearby, and only one of them has their life taped. But what happens when they get together, stop being polite, and getting real is what they’ve dubbed, “In Cooperation With Muscle Nation.”
Who are these strangers? There’s Robin Myrick, Emily Loving, Hillary Holsonback, Danielle Georgiou, Sandi Edgar, Willie Baronet, and Andy Amato. And maybe they aren’t really strangers to each other. They all went to school together; some have already graduated, while others are still working toward that end of goal of a hood and a floppy hat (MFA and Ph.D). But what they all want to do is clench their teeth and flex their art by releasing the latest currents of thought and inspiration through the ever evolving creation of dance, digital, painting, sculpture, photography, writing, and drawing.
And they’ve been flexing around town making their debut appearance at ArtCon 7. Then they occupied Artopia, brandishing urinals with flyers and dispersing bow-clad bottles of Muscle Milk. Now they will help celebrate the opening and dedication of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge on March 2.
Love it or hate it, art is their Real World. Flexing is their reality TV. And the muscles just come along with the territory.
