Nate Hill is at a crossroads. After a series of performances steeped in childhood imagery, he’s ready for something new. For an artist his age it’s amazing that he’s already become the subject of posts on Gawker, Time Out NY and other mainstream blogs, an article filled with anger in the Daily News, and never mind the general snarkiness of online citizens (he accused me of being one of those). Yet, Hill feels that Mr. Dropout, his new performance, is about turning a page. Starting a few weeks ago, Hill has been walking the length of Manhattan via Broadway wearing all white, including a gauze veil tucked into a white balaclava.
Thanks to everyone who came out for our informal six-month anniversary celebration, which quickly became a big ol’ party at our rather new Williamsburg office.
Some thoughts about last night’s liveblogging experiment at English Kills art gallery and high quality photos from each of the performances.
