For Eventua’s finale, CHERYL invites audiences to “revel in the joyous power of dance-induced psychosis/euphoria” in an experimental, interactive performance that responds to CCA’s exhibition, The Big Hoot, featuring comic paintings by David Leigh and Larry Bob Phillips.
CHERYL is a four-member, semi-anonymous, often cat-masked artist collective based in Brooklyn, New York, known for its video art, museum installations, performances and dance parties. CHERYL explores the themes of mortality, mania, the feline-human connection, the limits of shoulders, the flammability of dollar-store hair extensions, and the staining power of fake blood. CHERYL has been bringing its particular brand of FRESHMAGICK to New York City since colonial times, and has since acquired a dedicated cult following and media attention for over-the-top happenings involving outrageous costumes, exuberant dance moves, and participatory dance floor suicide. CHERYL's video and performance work has been featured through various installations and events with the Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum, The Jewish Museum, the Bruce High Quality Foundation, and Eyebeam Art and Technology Center.
