How to Make contemporary installation art

Each & Every One of You (EEOOY) is a mock TV show pilot that teaches ordinary people how to make contemporary installation art. If these words strike fear into your heart or make you cringe with memories of seeing contemporary art and wondering what the hell it was all about, this show is for you!

Inspired by the fifties, celebrity art instructor Jon Gnagy who taught thousands of pioneer NBC TV viewers how to draw hokie landscapes. EEOOY host Andy Jenny show how fun and easy it can be to make contemporary art using his Four Installation Art Directives™.

EEOOY is a sincere but irreverent 1980's-cable-TV-style show written and acted by ex-art critic Don Goodes. Unlike any other show on the subject, it embraces rather than tries to sidestep a central paradox: contemporary art is simultaneously profoundly significant and completely irrelevant. The show is funny and educational. Where ever EEOOY has been shown, in art galleries, museums and on cable TV in Canada, the US and Spain, it has become a cult-classic.

Two 30 minute pilots that were co-produced at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Alberta Canada in the late nineties, as part of the Pop Sub n'Mass Culture Residency.

THE WEIRDNESS INSTALLATION EPISODE is a madcap creation involving a dirty old stuffed dog, the wanton scattering of lint and much more. Anne Marie (Anne Marie Léger) is there with viewer letters. As always, the critic (Caterina Pizanias) drops by to interpret Andy's latest creation. And, as a bonus, you'll visit the Art Shopping Channel (hosted by Lyle Ashton Harris and Anne Davis Mulford).

As always, the critic (Ahasiw Maskegon-Iskwew) drops by to interpret Andy's latest creation.
