John Waters – filmmaker, performer, art collector – has let his creative spirit flow freely, bringing several disparate works of art together in a show called “Absentee Landlord” at the Walker Art Center.

He even offers you his own personal invitation to the show:

Speaking of the “flooding MacDonalds” video – Euan Kerr interviewed Waters late last week, during which he came up with another performance video idea:

“Maybe if this is the success that I hope it will be they could do ‘Flooding the Walker,'” he smiles. Standing behind him a Walker staff member looks mildly distressed.

For now the museum appears to be much more comfortable flooded with Waters than with water.
