A.Bandit – A SECRET HAS TWO FACES – GLENN KAINO AND DEREK DELGAUDIO
A Secret Has Two Faces
This multifaceted project is the latest collaboration between Glenn Kaino and Derek DelGaudio, who work together as the conceptual performance art duo A.Bandit to make magical art which has been exhibited and performed in venues that span a diverse range of cultural activities. A Secret Has Two Faces introduces their pioneering work in the fields of art and magic and contains interviews and stories from noteworthy practitioners within both fields. It will be a generous access point into the normally secret practice from which A.Bandit operates and will contain several secret elements and magical features that distinguish it as a type of performance, in and of itself.
A.Bandit is an experimental performance art group started by conceptual artist Glenn Kaino and conceptual magician Derek DelGaudio. Formed as an alliance with the intention of creating a new performative medium between the worlds of art and magic, A.Bandit has performed their spectacular psycho-spatial interventions at such venues as The Kitchen, NYC; The Geffen Playhouse, Los Angeles; Pershing Square Signature Center, NYC; Soho House, Los Angeles; Art LA Contemporary in Santa Monica; and LAXART Annex in Hollywood, where they have taken residence for six months opening up what they called, “a conceptual magic shop” named THE SPACE BETWEEN. Their most recent production IN & OF ITSELF just finished a 16-week sold out run at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles and is currently open at the Daryl Roth Theater in New York City.
