From Reverend Al of the Cacophony Society:

The new year will bring us many strange things, among them a museum exhibition on the history of Cacophony and the Suicide Club, opening on February 4 — in Orange County of all places (along with sneak preview of Jon Alloway’s documentary on our group).

“The Cacophony Society Zone Show” is a retrospective look at the Cacophony Society, a national collective of guerrilla artists, dada pranksters, and various eccentrics pursuing “experiences beyond the mainstream.” Dedicated to activities mocking societal expectations, sacred cows, and good taste, The Cacophony Society evolved from the San Francisco Suicide Club and its members were chief organizers of the Burning Man Festival in Northern Nevada. The Society’s pranking served as inspiration for the activities of Project Mayhem in Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club. The exhibition will feature hundreds of event photos, ephemera, video, custom props, costumes, and original art created for events.

The February 4th opening will be celebrated with a block party featuring carnivalesque music and performance from former members, art cars, competing protestors, and an on-call ambulance. The exhibition and block party are free.

The exhibition is held in conjunction with a sneak preview of the documentary “Into the Zone: The Story of the Cacophony Society” at the historic Yost Theater, just down the street. Doors and cocktail reception at 3, screening at 4pm followed by a Q&A. Advance ticketing (advised), film info at:
