On a brisk February night in 1999 a live 1,250 pound bull visited the grunt Gallery.
Ancient myths and stories were re-told of the 15,000 year old Wounded Bison painting projected onto the bull (and the smooth, angular gallery walls). We talked about culture, nature, bulls and palimpsests.
The thing I remember the most from that evening was the respectful hush of the audience. Here we were, crammed into a small gallery with this unpredictable massive creature and we felt a palpable sense of reverence.
The month long exhibition closed out with an auction of Art Meat.
