Via Canada Arts Connect: Something a little different!
The Last Savage – art show and literary reading / memorial service for Randy “Macho Man” Savage Naco Gallery, Toronto, November 2011.
Curated by Nathaniel G. Moore featuring readers David Brock, Spencer Gordon and several visual artists to be announced.
The art show and reading will celebrate the life of Randy Macho Man Savage, and anyone else for that matter that made your life a little easier as a child. Participants are encouraged to draw or write short pieces exploring sentimental or trivial heroes from their childhood. For me wrestling was just one little item, and now it is more a fond memory of that summer passion, to become something extraordinary , to be an invincible champion, even if it was just in my backyard, and to get excited about the maniacal fantasy of pro wrestling, that’s it, nothing more. It was never more than a doodle day dream, a way of counting sheep to fall asleep, but instead of sheep it was off the top rop flying elbow drops. I’ve been collecting commissioned drawings of Savage for the last 3 years and this show will showcase that work. The reading portion of the night will take the form of a “live” anthology of childhood hero poetry or prose.I’m looking for work that celebrates infantile and juvenile memories. So find your own Randy Savage, write something and get in touch with me about being a part of this show.
Deadline is 3RD September, 2011. Send stuff to bowlbrawl '@' gmail.com
