Nayland Blake: Behavior

Misbehavior: A Series of Performance Reactions to
Nayland Blake's "BEHAVIOR"
Wednesday, December 17, 2008
8PM Free Admission

Performers: Rob Fitterman, Robert Gluck, Sarah Schulman,
Carmelita Tropicana and Dominic Vine.
Curated by Nayland Blake

Please join us next Wednesday, December 17 for the first night in a series of performances responding and reacting to BEHAVIOR, the current exhibition by Nayland Blake. During the course of the exhibition, Blake will also curate two more evenings of performances, January 9 and February 7. Each night he will invite five artists, musicians, and authors to react to his work. The second Misbehavior, on January 9, will be no less spectacular, showcasing additional performer-reactors, as well as a re-staging of Blake’s notorious performance, "Gorge," a one-hour performance in which the artist sits shirtless in front of a table full of food from which the audience is encouraged to feed him. The final Misbehavior, promises to be a grand finale, full of surprises. Be prepared to see interpretations of Blake’s work by artists such as Zeena Parkins, Carolee Schneemann, and Lynn Tillman. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated, 100-page catalogue—to appear in early January 2009—with an Introduction by the show’s curator, Maura Reilly, and catalogue entries by Nayland Blake and Reilly.
