WE | Performance Series

Presented by Nikki Pike and Daisy McGowan at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum

Please join us for a series of living sculptures by Colorado-based artists. The series will take place atop a public pedestal traditionally meant to hold a historical monument, a transformation will occur from pedestal to outdoor public stage hosting performances that acknowledge underrepresented people in the cultural labor force.

Performers:

This will be a safe & socially distanced outdoor event so please wear a mask if you attend.

The series will tandem the kick off of the Downtown Partnership’s Art on the Streets and following these performances, an artwork will be unveiled to further mark the occasion.

The downtown partnership has chosen to temporarily exhibit Nikki Pike’s sculpture that reads “WE the PRIVILEGED.” in reference to Robert Indiana’s widely recognized text-based sculpture LOVE, as well as the Preamble to the United States Constitution.

By changing “we the people” to “we the privileged,” the artist asks the viewer to ponder the power dynamics associated with traditional monuments.

A special thanks to all of our supporters:

Nikki Pike’s WE was originally curated by Black Cube Nomadic Art Museum as part of a wider project, Temporary Monuments. The project was conceived, co-produced, and commissioned together with the Denver Theater District.
