In 2017 I did what I believe to be my 160th performance, give or take. I’m not certain of the exact number since many of my early pieces went undocumented. In the moment, its hard to see what will remain a relevant part of your artistic practice and what will be a passing phase. There were also many opportunities to perform then, with at least three dedicated monthly Performance Art Open mics taking place, and I made it my business to attend all of them. This would have been 2012, around the time that many members of the Brooklyn performance art community began laying the groundwork for the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival (BIPAF) which would take place the following year.
My performance output has slowed down since then, mostly due to a performance related injury that went misdiagnosed for about a year, but it is still the main focus of my practice and will continue to be for a long time.
I’d like to commemorate my 160th performance, as well as the overhaul of my website and relaunch of my blog by posting documentation from smaller performances and collaborations that I feel don’t need dedicated pages in my projects section. Here’s to many more!
