Walter McBean Gallery San Francisco Art Institute 1998

Collaboration with Harrell Fletcher.

Working with then current Art Institute student Anthony Powers we created an installation that revolved around Anthony's life. Using a variety of media and approaches the show explored some of Anthony's interests including heavy metal music and World Federation Wrestling. The installation included: significant objects from Anthony's past recreated by Art Institute sculpture students, enlarged drawings of all the dogs Anthony has owned, a time line of Anthony's life, a video of Anthony demonstrating wrestling moves on us, photographs from his childhood in Long Island, NY, 20 portraits of Anthony produced by a beginning painting class at the school, 30 t-shirts worn by Anthony each day the show was in progress with photographs of Anthony's high school buddies on them, and a video of Anthony drumming his favorite heavy metal songs on a table.
