About 500 people turned out Oct. 19 to help Denton’s Good/Bad Art Collective create a 28-minute infomercial, Curtains, that will air locally and nationally in late November.
The art collective was both popular and off the radar between 1993 and 2001, when it staged rock shows and cheeky art projects that were hybrids of sculpture, installation and performance art.
Martin Iles and Chris Weber, founding members of the collective, said the crowd that came to Bryan Tower in Dallas was “nice and manageable.”
Not bad for a project that’s been in the works for nearly a year, a project that is one of 10 created to celebrate the Nasher Sculpture Center’s 10th anniversary — and its dedication to getting sculpture out of the museum and into public spaces.
The anniversary celebration, called the Nasher XChange, started last weekend and runs through Feb. 16 in sites throughout Dallas.
