Jack Metcalf is proud to present


- an art experience as much as an art object -

Crystal Theatre // Missoula MT // April 18, 2013 // 8 - 10 PM

Free and Open to the Public


Hello friends, onlookers, spectators, I’m Jack Metcalf, and I’m here to tell you that you have been bred to look. You have been bred by looking. Looking is history, and history is looking. On April 18th from eight to ten at the Crystal Theater, I invite you to come look for yourself at a once in a lifetime, one-night only spectacle of looking—that is if looking involved a wink more than looking. A Synthetic Spring is a collaborative art project, including art, dance, and performance that will leave you looking for your look. It is a mixture of nothing you may have looked at before, and everything you might have looked at before. It will cascade over you and leave you with only your look. It will leave you looking harder, not knowing where to look. So please join me for a night of spectacle and glitter, bewilderment and looking, and don’t forget to bring your spectacles, fellow onlookers.

Featuring the talents of poet Jacob Kahn, audio/video technician Michael Workman, seamstress Hana MT, actor Jeff Medley, choreographer Joy French and the Bare Bait Dance Company, DJ Kris Moon, and milliner Christine Borchers.
