Elizabeth Dee (Elizabeth Dee Gallery) and Ryan McNamara (artist)


When one thinks of dynamic combinations, most often Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups come to mind, two great tastes that go great together. When one thinks of stunning alliances in the art world, here, like the poignant Reese’s cup, is a classic being born.

Ryan McNamara is one of the most talented artists working in performance today. From his piece at Performa last year called “Sacred Band of Thebes AKA Any Fag Could Do That to his more recent projects in the Whitney Biennial and PS1’s Greater New York, McNamara is stepping up the game and blending different practices of dance/theater/history/make-up and more.  Now add Elizabeth Dee in the mix, one of the most exciting cultural producers making things happen today (she was one of the main people responsible for the fantastic X Initiative, as well as running one of the most dynamic galleries in Chelsea) and the possibilities are nearly endless.

Listen along and hear of such amazements as the permanent black eye, high school art projects on mass public display,  re-envisioning the collector/steward/patron role  and of course, disconnecting your ass and learning the almighty booty dance.
