L’enfant Terrible  an immersive art project

en·fant ter·ri·ble

1. an incorrigible child; a child who makes terrifyingly candid remarks
2. a person known for shocking remarks or outrageous behavior
3. a usually young and successful person who is strikingly unorthodox, innovative, or avant-garde

Austin artist Denise Prince is in the process of creating her most ambitious project: L’enfant
Terrible,
an immersive, one-night-only multi-media experience that will allow attendees to
spend an evening within a work of art as creative collaborators. We are inviting you to be
part of this artwork and to be a sponsor of this groundbreaking project. Participation is not a
must and will only add to your experience should it catch your fancy. Play it by ear!

L’enfant Terrible defies the notion that there is a Rubicon one inevitably crosses from
innocence to knowingness. Instead, participants will enjoy both states simultaneously and
xperience them in their heightened form. The boundaries of the exhibition space will, too, no
longer exist. When the night is over guests will be able to virtually return to the work and to
their place in it.

The event will take place Saturday, October 22 at Austin’s Scottish Rite Theater. From 6 to 8pm
VIP’s are invited to star in a Méliès inspired film, followed by disco naps, cocktails & aperitifs.
The event will be opened to individual ticket holders from 8 to 11pm. Expect colorful
projections of animated slumber and Somnolent/Insomnolent Stories, readings from Madeline to
Tropic of Cancer
. There will be digital flipbooks; interactive installations; Chelsea Girls
reimagined; as well as our signature Salinger Sling cocktail.  

With her project Tractatus 7, an explosion of unflinching themes and brilliant imagery,
Denise Prince has earned a reputation as an Enfant Terrible in her own right. "No one is
making work like this," touted Anne Wilkes Tucker, Curator at the Museum of Fine Arts
Houston, of the series.
“I, too, think art should step further than any knowledge we have
about it," said artist Robert Buck, in response to the collection.

Prince’s work has been featured at the Contemporary Austin; Museum of Fine Arts Houston;
International Zizek Studies Conference; Kopeikin Gallery, LA; Anthology Film Archive, NY;
Barbarian Art Gallery, Zurich; EFFEARTE, Milan; Art Moscow, among other national and
international institutions.

We are inviting you to be a primary participant in the evening, collaborating in the creation
of the short film (if you choose) and other VIP exclusive happenings. Your support allows us
to create a one-of-a-kind and intimate experience. This project has been developed with the
support of Women & Their Work and grants from the City of Austin’s Cultural Arts Division.
Help bring L’enfant Terrible to life. All proceeds go towards this ticket-only event, to a public
presentation, and to companion works on 16mm film. Women and Their Work serves as fiscal
agent for 501[c](3) status.

We are grateful for your consideration.

Warm Regards,
