In today's eclectic art world too, focus is an essential tool that enables viewers to understand, or at the very least, to guess what particular artwork is about. "Focus 1" is the first of a series of exhibitions showing the foci in the artwork of a selection of Viridian Artists.

The final result in all these artists' work is unique & original regardless of what initially inspired them to create.

9. John Fleck, FF Alumn, debuts "NOTHING' BEATS PUSSY" at La MaMa, Oct 2-9

NOTHIN' BEATS PUSSY
October 2 - 19, 2003
Thursday - Saturday 10:00pm
Sunday 5:30pm
The Club

Actor/performance artist John Fleck will perform the New York debut of his newest, frantic song and dance spectacle, NOTHIN' BEATS PUSSY, in The Club at La MaMa October 2 to 19. Fleck portrays his butch ex-army father, his glamour-hungry mother, a talking fist named Pussy and an entire cast of characters in this one man cabaret where, according to Fleck, "blond ambition and upward mobility rear their ugly heads."

Developed and workshopped at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the
Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and the Evidence Room in Los Angeles over the past year, NOTHIN' BEATS PUSSY takes its title from a conversation Fleck had with his father about being gay. After discovering an adolescent Fleck dressed in his mother's nightgown and wearing one of her blonde wigs, his father's only words of advice or encouragement to his son after demanding to know if he was a fruit were simply, NOTHIN' BEATS PUSSY.

Fleck's shocking new show explores pussy as a metaphor for the clichéd American dream his parents hopelessly groped for in suburban Middle America with their cocktails and blond beehive coifs via the bargain basement. "Everyone wants pussy," Fleck explains with his lipstick besmeared Señor Wences-style puppet. "And everyone wants blonde pussy."

Fleck will be appearing in a new "supernatural drama" on HBO, "Carnivále," that debuts September 14. His character, Gecko the snake man, is part of an ensemble of freak show spectacles in a Depression-era carnival.
