Trophallacy critiques the dominance of the Win/Lose paradigm, pointedly in the arts. Blending live performance, video and voiceover, the work illuminates our cultural obsession with the creation of contests, rankings and competitions, and questions the artist’s acceptance of a damaging and often self-imposed framework. Vicki Amorose is an award-losing artist and writer, and a member of Gray Space project.
The Tailgate Party for Art, initiated by Gray Space, takes place 6-8pm outside the venue, with a 7pm break for the performance. 2D work by Gray Space artists will be on view through the month of June. Check out the interview with Kate Ali, Vicki Amorose and Eugene Contemporary Art.
