Chicago, IL

Exhibition dates: Thursday, January 4, 2018- Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Made-Up with Danny Volk is a performance and video series taking the form of an interview/talk show. The host, Danny Volk, interviews artists about their life and work while the artists use everyday cosmetics to paint his face into a temporary work of art. The project exists as a promotional platform with an interest in exploring power, intimacy, and the dynamics of interpersonal situations.

Screen Share Video Gallery is showing Seasons 1-4 and Season 7, during this month-long program. Seasons 5 & 6 were staged as live performances and are, therefore, not included.
