The Outlaw Series 2003
This project was Inspired by New York’s pre-Giuliani era Outlaw Parties, which were entirely illegal events taking place randomly throughout the NY Metro area in the mid 1980’s. Lisa Kirk organized this Gorilla- style exhibition that featured works that were placed performed installed or simply occurred in unorthodox settings. Without the aid of commercial or public institutions, the artists participating in the Outlaw Series take the questions of context, economy, time and meaning into their own hands, embracing the freedom of dissent that creativity thrives upon. And in the spirit of alternatives to more conventional exhibitions and exhibition spaces, all of the artists listed have proposed radical approaches to contemporary art making and installation.
