Vincent Trasov – My Fifty Years In A Nutshell

The exhibition My Fifty Years In A Nutshell is constructed around the artist’s alter ego, Mr. Peanut, with drawings, videos, photographs, paintings, and archival materials narrating this long and ongoing love story. Together with recently produced ink and wash on paper drawings, the exhibition focuses on the 20 day performance Mayoralty Campaign of 1974, which featured John Mitchell as ideator of the peanut campaign, campaign manager and spokesperson. It was an event that brought many diverse artists and groups together in a collaborative context. The campaign fulfilled a real alternative to the political status quo. Art had become life.
