Machine Dazzle unveiled his musical theatre piece, Treasure, at the Guggenheim as a commission by the museum’s Work and Process series during New York Fashion Week in 2019. For the show, dubbed a “rock ‘n’ roll cabaret,” Treasure is a future psyche-sex-adelic synth rock experience with stories about Machine’s mother, their relationship and the legacy she left to him. Exploring how stories, narratives and beliefs are enforced and reinforced in the home, Treasure undresses layers of his past to make sense of the present, featuring stories told and stitched together through song.
Sixteen looks from the original performance work Treasure by Machine Dazzle will be on display, accompanied by audio playback of songs from the album. The sculptures featured in Treasure were exhibited in Queer Maximalism x Machine Dazzle at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) from September 2022 to February 2023.
