|Franklin Furnace, George is in the Lake, a performance organized by William Pope.L and Jim Calder, Flyer with ink notations, January 1989.
Size: 8.5 x 11 inches
The flyer advertises an early theater work by William Pope.L, the famous street performance artist, who had a retrospective at MoMA last year. A 1989 press release by William Pope.L and Jim Calder for the Franklin Furnace event reads: “A metal barge carries the noble General George Washington across the ice when, WHAP!, the General teeters and falIs beneath the icy folds. A seriously funny feminist fairy tale, George is in the Lake, asks the question, What if George Washington had not crossed the Delaware? The answer is found in this anti-war, pro-gay, deconstructionist musical theater.”
