Richard Evans will present his art show

Richard Evans will present his latest one-man show entitled “NO BIG DADA” June 5-July 12 at the Bayview Cash Store.

The 80-year-old “art provocateur” has assembled, found, gifted and repurposed objects into 20 installations, according to a recent news release.

A reception with the artist will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 7.

According to the release, Evans’ history as an actor and director in Hollywood, and as a writer and director of his own films plays a significant role in his work. Props from his films, old movie stills, film reels and more remnants from the artist’s life are incorporated in pieces throughout the exhibition.

NO BIG DADA pays homage to artists in a variety of disciplines whose work has endured over the years, including Richard Brautigan, Luis Bunuel, Jean-Luc Godard, Rene Magritte and Seattle resident Buster Simpson, according to the release.

Evans also “doesn’t suffer fools gladly,” according to the release. He skewers icons of popular and political culture such as Tom Cruise, Andy Warhol and Dick Cheney with pieces titled “Tom’s Last Krooz Aboard the MS Kleergon,” “PopTop Ramen,” and “Cheney’s Game,” respectively.

NO BIG DADA is presented by Goosefoot, a non-profit community development organization.
