Festival Details - "I Get Results! Frank Moore for President 2008"...

I Get Results! Frank Moore for President 2008 January 20–March 6, 2020 Organized with Keith Wilson “Ah, yes! I did spend two years running for president as a write-in candidate! It is one of my most effective performances! It inspired a lot of people, forced changes in Laws in several states, attracted a lot of mainstream European press coverage, and gave me a platform on which to address issues. SEE, I AM NOT JUST A HUNK!” Frank Moore (1946–2013) was an artist, poet, painter, shaman, and teacher based in Berkeley, California. In 2008, and alongside running mate Susan Block, a sex educator and author, he mounted a campaign for president of the United States of America. A political novice who used a wheelchair and communicated primarily through a head-pointer, Moore intrinsically challenged norms of appearance, ability, and communication simply by way of showing up. While Moore was primarily known—and somewhat infamous—for his performances exploring erotic and emotional connection, he stumped for a Berkeley-friendly platform not unlike that of Senator Bernie Sanders. Along with universal basic income, health care, and education, Moore was behind election day as a paid holiday, an end to the buying and selling of debt, and a feast of further reasonable positions. After considerable effort from Moore’s longtime collaborators, he and Block were official write-in candidates in 25 states, each with its own byzantine bureaucracy. I Get Results! presents archival video footage, including public appearances and platform pronouncements, alongside official campaign documentation, press, and merchandise, all set within a patriotic installation modeled after the Moore/Block info-table assembled for events around the Bay. The exhibition opens on Inauguration Day, 2021, and remains on view for six weeks.
