Mikki Yamashiro: Candy Pain

SEP 22 & 29, 2016; OCT 13 & 26, 2016; NOV 1, 2016

In Real Life: Studio provides a glimpse into the working processes of artists. Throughout the fall a select group of artists utilizes spaces in the museum to convene and rehearse new material, including theater, dance, music, and performance. While some artists and collectives will simply discuss or workshop material, others will produce a new project from rehearsal to final performance. 

Project statement

Candy Pain is a Professional Wrestler who attempts to smash, kick, punch, pop, and/or destroy systems of oppression in each performance. She is influenced by pop culture and her hatred of men.
