The performance coincides with a showing of his unique art series “Neurotic” at the McClain Gallery. Waters has taken stills concerning race, sex, gender, consumerism and religion and transposed them into montages and sculpture. “I’m concerned that people don’t remember movies; they remember stills that they’ve seen over and over in books; so I try to photograph things in movies that you are never supposed to see,” says Waters.
Both events offer an opportunity to see a rare artist who is something between a vaudevillian and a scholarly renaissance man.
