Local Artist and New World School of the Arts Graduate Turns Chores into Performance Art
This month the Conde Contemporary gallery on Miracle Mile is sponsoring L.A. performance artist Norberto Rodriquez. His video-filmed project, “The devil and the details,” will document his month-long “doing” project where he films himself using the skills his father taught him. His previous “art = life” projects have included marrying a total stranger off the street for a year, living in a store in a luxury mall, and opening his home as a museum with public hours.
“He will literally come to your house and trim your hedges, or change your lightbulbs, organize your closet, walk your dog. That is all part of the art piece. Everything will be filmed,” says gallery owner Stacy Conde. “I can see this someday as an exhibition at MOMA or the Whitney. This guy is really cutting edge.”
For a mere $300 to $500 a day, you can book the genius of Rodriguez for a day and become part of art history. If you are interested, simply contact the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org
