THE CACOPHONY SOCIETY ZONE SHOW:
YOU MAY ALREADY BE A MEMBER

February 4 – April 15, 2012
http://www.grandcentralartcenter.com/ArtGallery_gcartgallery.php

EXHIBITION:
The Cacophony Society Zone Show is a retrospective look at the
Cacophony Society, a national collective of guerrilla artists, dada
pranksters and various eccentrics pursuing “experiences beyond
the mainstream.” Dedicated to activities mocking societal
expectations, sacred cows and good taste, The Cacophony
Society evolved from the San Francisco Suicide Club and its
members were chief organizers of the Burning Man Festival
in Northern Nevada. The Society’s pranking served as inspiration
for the activities of Project Mayhem in Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club.
The exhibition transforms the museums main gallery into a wildly
immersive environment filled with photos, graphics, video, props,
costumes, and original art from Society events.

BLOCK PARTY:
The Feburary 4th opening will be celebrated with a block party
featuring carnivalesque music and performance from Fancy
Space People, Clowns & Fetuses, Bieno Svengali, Eric Cash
and other artists associated with the Society.

COCKTAIL RECEPTION, FILM BENEFIT SCREENING AND Q&A
(*Ticketed Events):
This benefit preview screening of the documentary Into the Zone:
The Story of the Cacophony Society will be held at the historic
Yost Theater, only a few blocks from the Grand Central Art Center.
From 3-4pm, a cocktail reception will be held at the theater’s bar,
followed by screening and Q&A with Mark Fraunfelder (boingboing.net)
interviewing filmmaker Jon Alloway and Cacophony instigators
John Law, Danger Ranger, Chuckles Klown, and Reverend Al.
The film features extensive rarely seen footage as well exclusive
interview of Chuck Palahniuk on his experiences with the Society.

(ABOUT THE YOST: Recently re-opened, this 100-year-old theater
formerly served the area in a dual capacity: vaudeville palace upstairs
and basement holding cells dedicated to Orange County drunks and
criminals.)
