From an undisclosed desert location, somewhere between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, a collective of gently voiced cats produce and disseminate an educational project called The Pinky Show, intended to cultivate intellectual curiosity, openness, and compassion.
Focusing on information and perspectives that have been misrepresented, suppressed, ignored, or otherwise excluded from mainstream discussion, Pinky and her friends use a variety of formats (i.e. short videos, ephemera, visual art, books and ‘zines, blogging, etc.) to explore the unseen world in a way that is easy to understand, with special attention given to reconnecting information (plentiful in our contemporary world) to its oft-ignored ethical and moral dimensions.
Class Treason Stories (excerpts) will involve a multi-media installation that will provoke questions about the nature of education and the application of knowledge for either socially beneficent or individualist and competitive purposes.
Featured Artists: Pinky and Bunny with assistance from Kim and Mimi.
