Name: The Art Guys and Houston's Voice
The New York Times describes The Art Guys as “a cross between Dada and David Letterman, John Cage and The Smother Brothers.” This dynamic duo uses humor and everyday materials “as a way to demystify art in an attempt to welcome a broad range of audiences into the discourse of contemporary art.” Some people call them court jesters and fools, others compare them to such noted artists as Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol.
This documentary tells the story of The Arts Guys (Michael Galbreth & Jack Massing) who leased advertising space on specially tailored business suits designed for them by Todd Oldham. They wore these suits for a year as they traveled across America as “human billboards”.
The Suits are now in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
