“A once in a lifetime art experience that should not be missed.” -NY Times
The Living Installation is a hardcore, DIY, New York City artist-founded project that brings all people together to celebrate open creativity in every form. Bringing people together through creativity breaking down unnecessary boundaries in art.
We are thrilled to also announce that this 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY will include 14 bodies and tribute to the legendary Draw-A-Thon
10 years of power, over 250 shows.
Support and love from- Kenny Scharf, Draw-Mania, Michele Woo, and Anthony Vasquez
~Flesh on Flesh~
Come witness 12 human bodies working together to build a triumphant human sculpture made of flesh and white paint. It’s an example of just how much humans can do by working together with raw true emotion and physical challenge. Allow power, equality, and creativity to transcend you into the realms of all possibilities. One model at a time will enter nude. Alan will paint them white one at at time as they join and intertwine into one large form of energy. This is a happening / experience / performance / live work of art never to be recreated again. Come join us and take a vacation from New York in a 6-hour trip!
Also that night, a show of Large human size prints of Alan that will fill the space, a projection of 10 years of footage, small works, and other games, and fun.
A full bar, at a great 4000 sqft space!
Much fun and a great chance to take a 7 hour break from the city.

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.
