“My Name is Everybody” is a collaborative series of performances and installations by New York-based artists Matt Taber and Scott Nadeau that will conclude in a forthcoming video to be released later this year. (It is also a reference to the grossly underrated Spaghetti Western My Name Is Nobody, 1973.) Taking the form of a futuristic Western, the project centers on the character of Everybody, a stereotypically rugged cowboy played by Nadeau, as he wanders through a desolate American landscape. Over the course of his journey, he comes to understand the disparity between the physical world and intangible, technological systems.
For the opening of their exhibition Naked Earth, Nadeau will stage a weight-lifting performance in the freight elevator-cum-exhibition space Elevator Mondays, which has been reimagined as a prison cell, while Taber reads from the canonical, 1st-century BCE text, Ten Books on Architecture by Vitruvius. The performance’s accompanying installation will remain on view through July 31. Please enter through the long narrow alleyway to the east side of the building, the gallery entrance and parking are in the back.
When: Monday, July 3, 7–10pm
Where: Elevator Mondays (1026 Venice Boulevard, Suite E, Pico-Union, Los Angeles)
