Some thoughts about last night’s liveblogging experiment at English Kills art gallery and high quality photos from each of the performances.
I’m liveblogging Maximum Perception Performance Performance Festival tonight and you’re along for the ride.
So far, we’ve traveled from a Catholic school to African tunes to an auction to free bouncy rides to a man in his underwear getting text messages from the audience … and more ….
When you endlessly wander art fairs for days on end you start dreaming up awards and when you write for a blogazine you publish them … here they are for your amusement.
This summer, I tried to go see a free David Byrne concert in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park but to no avail.

Move over Performa, there’s a new kid in town and it’s called Maximum Perception.
This upcoming weekend, Peter Dobill and Phoenix Light have curated over 20 performances by national and international artists which will take place over the course of two nights.
In an attempt to answer the age-old question — Is it art or home decor? — I perused the halls of Art Basel Miami to see how galleries are serving the lifestyle needs of the rich and famous.
Outside of the major art fairs there’s dozens of other art things to see and do in Miami, including Wynwood Walls, which featured a bootilicious Sissy Bounce performance, art by Fairey, Swoon, Stelios Faitakis, Los Gêmeos, and more.
If looking at art is fun, watching it burn is great. There’s something cathartic about attending an event dedicated to the destruction of art in the middle of the world’s largest art fair bacchanalia.
In the belly of the art market beast, Hrag is wandering Miami in search of the ultimate art fair experience. First up is the landmark Art Basel fair in South Beach.
While the players in the global art market descend on Miami to scoop up artistic baubles and all the prestige associated with it, some people have arrived at this international art orgy for less consumer driven motives. Enter Celso and his Art Burn event.
Why haven’t we been posting much recently? Well, the short answer is MIAMI! Yes, we’re off to the fairs and we’re bringing you along with us. Expect many musings from the front lines of the art world’s greatest clusterfuck.
What happens when in the name of art you ride through Manhattan in a truck hauling ginormous letters that spell the word NO? Lyra finds out.
