This performance and exhibition took place at Walmart SuperCenter in South Philadelphia and Temple Contemporary Gallery at the Tyler School of Art. With help from classmates and students, we spent my entire credit card limit ($6,000) on various items from Walmart which we then transported back to the gallery. Over the course of a week, we made new use of the objects, arranging and rearranging them in space. Some of the events that occured included: a contest and award ceremony for the "Ugliest Sculpture," a fashion show featuring fashions from the store, improvisational dance, and floral arrangements with $1,000 of articifical flowers. A hired actor, dressed head to toe in Walmart clothing laughed and cried over and over for the duration of the show's opening. Following the exhibition, all of the items were returned to the Walmart for a refund.
