Jared David Paul Anderson: The Primordial Playground
Leon Gallery, 1112 East 17th Avenue
Saturday, May 25, 7 to 10 p.m.
Leon’s Empirical Imperatives series continues over Memorial Day weekend with Jared David Paul Anderson’s The Primordial Playground, a movable feast of performance art that’s previously gone down in a cave and in an alley. In an actual gallery setting, Anderson will break art down into its most primal form of expression — but we can’t tell you how he’s going to do it. The beauty of performance art is that you never know what you’ll get until it’s screaming in your ear.
