Tom Marioni's signature artwork, "Free Beer: The Act of Drinking Beer with Friends Is the Highest Form of Art," pisses some people off. Their fury is partly understandable: The original installation involved the artist and his friends getting drunk in a museum and leaving their empties and butts for audiences to view. We think it's hilarious, but we can see how it would get on some nerves. At Anne Colvin's new installation, "The Colony Room," the artist and curator pays tribute to London's famous private drinking club of the same name, and for her weekend-night we-won't-call-'em-parties, she invites special guests to hold forth. First stop, Tom Marioni. The original space was a major haunt of Francis Bacon, so the big industrial space is hung with his work and there's a sort of unchandelier by Zachary Scholz; other guests on the schedule are Rubber O Cement and Shalo P.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Sept. 26. Continues through Nov. 6, 2008
