Alexander Hryshko and White House Studio member Nathaniel Addison present “Sadistic Glam” -’94, a sardonic investigation of ruin and redundancy uncovered through photographs, bootleg VHS tapes, shoot interviews and cheap souvenirs. Evidence of real pain and personal tragedy are documented and arranged to present an alternate perspective on celebrity and spectacle from behind the scenes of professional wrestling.
Displayed using obsolete technologies that signify the temporary highs experienced by pro wrestlers, the collection chronicles a mainstreaming of violence and corruption that has accelerated over the last 30 years of the oldest sport in the world. “Sadistic Glam” -’94 confronts the youths’ naive adoration with brutal truths and disturbing personalities, attempting to reconcile the difference.
Bands start around 11.
