Performance Is Alive:
A SLICK AND GRITTY FUNDRAISER UPDATE – INTERVIEW WITH AYANA EVANS AND GERALDO MERCADO (an interview about the fundraiser organized by Ayana Evans and Performance Is Alive to help my family members affected by Hurricane Maria).
Bushwick Daily: NSFW: ‘wwwIII’ Blurred Lines Between the Digital and Physical Worlds. “A plastic tarp was laid out on the floor and a thorny crown was placed subtly on the back of a chair as if Jesus excused himself, but was coming right back.”
Hyperallergic: Dangerous Bodies on the Verge of Breaking Down. Amazing write up by Seph Rodney of my performance “It’s Going To Be Ok” from May 6th 2016 at Gallery Sensei during Performance Anxiety. “Someone you don’t know is present in front of you with more potential to break social codes than the other bodies typically encountered.”
Washington City Paper: Tim Regan writes about his experience watching all 25 hours of the 25 Hour Performance Art Festival at DCAC. Read his account of Geraldo’s performance “Bubblegum Bubblegum”. “Performer Geraldo Mercado kicks his own ass onstage in “Bubblegum, Bubblegum.” It’s hypnotic, violent, and downright spooky at times.”
The Awl: How New Yorkers Deal With Art in Public (Kids Love It; Rich People, Not So Much). An early interview conducted by Adam R. Burnett. Unfortunately the condensed version of the article that was printed somewhat misrepresented the project and my intentions behind it. You can read the unabridged intro written by Adam on my Kewpie Series Project Page.
