Backyard Readymade
2006

Backyard Readymade was a one-night participatory performance created in celebration of the opening of Red Eye:  Los Angeles Artists from the RFC.  Two long tables were covered in vinyl tablecloths with classic red picnic print.  A repeating pattern of all-American condiments were placed on top of them: Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Hellman's Mayonnaise, French's Classic Yellow Mustard, B&G Crunchy Kosher Dills, Mount Olive Sweet Relish, and Tapatío Salsa Picante.  At one end of the space was a grill, in front of which participants formed a line.  Above the grill was a giant sign reading:

Burgers + Chili Dogs
and Veggie Burgers for the Sissies

At midnight, an ice cream truck rolled up to dispense free ice cream.
