Gronk’s Theater of Paint at The Craft & Folk Art Museum

Gronk’s Theater of Paint explores the legendary Los Angeles artist’s extensive work in set design through an interactive, site-specific theater set and documentation from his past productions. Gronk’s work in set design stretches over 40 years, from his time as a member of the conceptual artist collective ASCO to his recent opera productions with director Peter Sellars. Gronk’s theater installation merges his love of the improvised and low budget aesthetic of B-movies with the operatic. Visitors are invited to be active participants in his theater, moving through the space and interacting with props. Gronk’s Theater of Paint will also serve as a dynamic setting for performances and public programs throughout the course of the exhibition.
