MUC's Carnival of Insecurities is filled with self-help twists on classic carnival entertainment.

MUC's Carnival of Insecurities

MUC is an artist collaborative based in Los Angeles. We focus primarily on tackling societal issues through performance, installation, and video.  We rarely say “no” to a new environment whether it be a Pilates studio, night club, art walk or gallery. We take a light-hearted and fun approach with a touch of absurdity aimed at giving relief to the pressures of modern life.

In our new project opening in May 2012, we explore the age-old mass appeal of the carnival; an exciting, stress-relieving, and somewhat dark event for anyone. This installation and performance will take place at RAID Projects Gallery in Los Angeles, California. 

Filled with twists on classic carnival entertainment, our version of a fun fair examines life's expectations and the anxiety arising from them. For example, there will be a row of food booths that serve miniature edibles at a disproportionate full-sized price and an anxiety relieving "Whack-a-Bank" game.

So why are we asking you for help? MUC believes in the full experience of art for all art appreciators everywhere. Our goal is $1500 to help us make the rides, food, and entertainment that are essential to providing the full carnival art experience. Please give what you can! If we don't reach our goal of $1500, then we will get $0!

Thank you for your support!
