Our Statement 

The Living Installation is a Brooklyn-born, artist collective/performance/NYC art staple. Artist, Michael Alan, was born in Bushwick and was raised in Brooklyn and Staten Island primary goal to keep New York, New York,he  has even taught two summer courses on the project at the School of Visual Arts as an intensive. The Living Installation is a public art happening where humans are turned into living sculpture for an audience of all. It is a free-spited project where artists, collectors, art enthusiasts, and children come and make art along side each other. The project has the diversity of being DIY, raw, and shocking and then stripping all the way down to having a show at the New Museum with children circling around the show. It could be so wild, captivating and raw and at the same time could be family-friendly and surrounded by strollers. The focus of the Living Installation is to show that humans can do anything working together with positive energy and strength. People get together and through community creativity happens. The Living Installation is not a play, it is not an alternative drawing class, and it is not social event to get drunk at. It is a serious trip/adventure/experience that lasts from day into the night. It converges many forms of expression and topics such as dance, music, live painting, choreography, sculpture, culture, spoken word, politics, comedy, the times, and life. It is multi-faceted and emotion evoking. Our most recent performance was at the New Museum in May and was featured in the New Museum’s current edition of The Paper. For the last ten years we have done shows at the Chelsea museum, Kenny Scharf’s Cosmic Cavern, The Whitney, The Gershwin Hotel, The Dumbo Arts Center, Baffo Art Center, Teatro IATI , Millenium/La Mama, The House of Collection, ABC No Rio, Gasser Grunert Gallery, McCaig-Welles gallery, Jack the Pelican gallery, Eastern District gallery in Bushwick, rooftops throughout NYC, and even at Michael Alan’s home. The show is set to original music with collaborations with artists such as Kenny Scharf, Meredith Monk, members of Wu-Tang, Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedy’s, Ariel Pink, Japanther, Odd Nosdam, The Boredoms, and Tommy Ramone. We have been fortunate to have our photos featured in Bomb, The NY Times movie, The Huffington Post, Artefuse, Art Forum, The Creators Project, Brooklyn Vegan, the Village Voice, and Marie Claire Italy, just to name a few publications.
