• Museum Fiasco, Las Vegas’ first Kunsthalle-style museum opening at AREA15, has announced Brian “Paco” Alvarez as the museum manager. Corner Bar Management’s newest concept, Museum Fiasco, will open to the public with “Cluster,” an award-winning installation by Playmodes Studio ON Nov. 13.
“Finding the right person to lead Museum Fiasco, a progressive gallery, was no easy task,” said Ryan Doherty, founder of Corner Bar. “I am thrilled to announce that Brian Alvarez, who is a Las Vegas local, is bringing his expertise in the cultural arts scene to this role.”
Museum Fiasco is a museum experience based on the German Kunsthalle model, which is a non-collection-based museum hosting rotating exhibits. There are 14 known Kunsthalle-style museums in the United States, and Museum Fiasco will be the first in Nevada.
Alvarez is a cultural anthropologist, a former Las Vegas arts commissioner and Las Vegas native. He has extensive knowledge of the city’s cultural arts scene and previously served as curator of the Las Vegas News Bureau photo and film archives; as interim-curator of the Neon Museum; and was the art curator for online retailer Zappos.com.
Museum Fiasco will showcase futuristic exhibits, audio-visual experiences and art in a space that will foster a sense of connectivity for visitors. The first installation, “Cluster,” pushes boundaries in light, technology and creativity in a large-scale audio-visual experience, presenting a dynamic, interactive show that engages the senses. The virtuosic play tells a story through a collection of lights that strobe in harmony with the extraordinary soundscape. The 360-degree experience explores the chaotic feeling of being inside the kernel of a glitchy computer processor.
Located in the heart of Las Vegas and minutes from the Strip, AREA15 offers immersive activations, monumental art installations, socially distanced events, extraordinary design elements, unique retail, groundbreaking technology, bars, eateries and much more. The complex also offers nearly 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space with more than 800 free parking spaces.
