American Meat LLC will construct an action art, mobile, viewer interactive, sculptural object-producing unit, as site for friendly constructive contemporary discourse, and fine art imperialistic gifting. The sculptural object-producing unit will be placed at various sites during various times during the festival allowing the viewing public total access to their produced objects and the American Meat LLC psyche. Whether a sculpture, a song, or a peck on the cheek from these healthy virile Americans, American Meat LLC always aims to please and entertain.
Remember the American traditional saying: The Customer is Always Right!
American Meat LLC is a North American art collective dedicated to the preservation and perseverance of conceptually biased, action based, viewer interactive, 1970’s influenced performance art, relational aesthetic oriented, politically pertinent, object oriented, contemporary action art, founded upon the canons of contemporary critical art theory.
