I suppose I’ll have to forgive DRIFT, a two day performance event scheduled to take place in November at Rush Arts Gallery for using an artist working in my least favorite art genre as their promotional picture. Fluxus artist Geoffrey Hendricks stands on his head, and a call for entries is born.
I let this small misstep pass of course, because DRIFT’s annual event features some great artists, and this year will be part of New York’s Performa Biennial. DRIFT Alumni/AFC art school compradres include: Matthew Day Jackson, Sheilah Wilson, Aaron Williams, Damian Catera, Alicia Wargo, and many more. If you want to submit work to this open call for live work, performance and video art proposals will be accepted through July 13, 2007. Contact the curators directly at driftartproject.com to submit work.
DRIFT was founded by Eileen Olivieri Torpey in 2002 and is curated this year by Torpey and Bradley Pecore.
