The Living Installation is a refreshening low-fi look into the essence of creation. It is a behind the scenes presentation of art rather than a gallery setting. The evening consists of wacky performance, body art, video projection, live music, and punk sounds, with comedic satirical elements, endless inspiration, and so much more. Over one hundred works of Michael Alan are on display.
This ongoing living art human project, has been going strong for close to 20 years in NYC, founded by Bushwick-born Michael Alan. He has been creating live shows in NYC since the 90s. He believes in preserving the raw essence of old New York.
