Last July Charles Linder had a show at Ever Gold Gallery that was one of the most talked about shows we’ve seen in a while. Not only because of the nature of the pictures on display, but also because of his performance during the opening night cutting off the jaws of 3 wild boar heads that he had hunted in northern California. (If you were so inclined, you can watch the videos of the carnage over at Fecal Face.)

Charles Linder (aka Cash Cowboy) is an artist and a peculiar character, an artist and an art collector, an aspiring member of the Bohemian Club and an avid boar hunter. Last Friday, outside of Ever Gold, on the sidewalk of O’Farrell, he roasted one that he had killed a few weeks ago. Needless to say, he attracted all sorts of attention and filled up the whole street with delicious smelling smoke. It felt like all sorts of wrong.

The whole operation lasted nearly 6 hours (a bit longer than planned), but unfortunately we didn’t get to sample it. Judging by how it looked and smelled we obviously wish we had…

The pig-roasting “performance” was part of the special March programming at Ever Gold, which included four days of what they called “The Ever Gold Gentleman’s Club” with the aim of turning partying into art. For that purpose they installed an impressive full-sized makeshift bar inside the gallery (it seems impossible, but these guys managed) and served free PBR to the visitors the whole weekend. And on Friday, roasted piggie, too.

Now, we can’t wait until next month when Andrew and Greg, the Ever Gold guys, will turn the gallery into a real laundromat…
