Although its still Untitled, the Denver Art Museums series is never unwelcome. This years series, which kicks off tonight, has a rather mischievous theme: Borrowing from the concept of the current (and soon to end) Embrace! exhibit, for which a group of artists literally took over the museum to create site-specific installations, Untitled # 27: Rogue invites participants to act a little rascally themselves by partaking in things like rogue yoga with Breathe Yoga Studio, live music in unlikely places and live theater Buntports ongoing serial sitcom The Joan and Charlie Show performed poolside (actually in the third-floor freight elevator). Also on the agenda will be an Embrace! tour with museum curator Christoph Heinrich, a gallery tour with art historian Giulia Bernardini, a chance to meet some of the Embrace! artists in person, and a hilarious heart-to-heart with Denver draftsman Bill Amundsen.
One of the cool things about Untitled is that its really buffet style; its not linear, says the DAMs Ashley Pritchard. There are lots of things going on at the same time: art-making, quizzes you can even get a special sticker and then go out and find your other rogue people. Its a great, funky way to enjoy the museum at your own speed.
Future installments scheduled on every last Friday of the month through August will look into the outer limits of photography, design, slow art, the Biennial of the Americas and King Tut. Admission is free with the regular DAM fee of $3 to $13, or two-for-one at the door for students with a valid ID. The DAM is at 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway; find more info at http://untitled.denverartmuseum.org.
