Shane Caffrey by the window

The L Magazine has a great feature, Ten Young Artists You Should Know, complete with interviews. I worked with Shane Caffrey and Amy Yao on their interviews, though they’re all worth a look. A teaser:

The L: If you could collaborate with any other New York City artist (living or dead), who would be, why, and what would you create together?
Shane: I’m a huge fan of Brooklyn based artist Tehching Hsieh. His five “one-year-performances” are often categorized as “endurance art”. I propose a collaboration where Hsieh and I live our regular lives, never meeting or corresponding. From a synchronized time, we both systematically weed out endurance from our actions in life. The performance project would follow us separately as we endure to un-endure. The piece will have no time limit. The project would end when both of us, in our own times, give up giving up or fade away and die.

Either that or I re-enact Terry and Edie’s walk in the park scene in On the Waterfront. I stand in for Brando as Terry, and Brooklyn born Marisa Tomei plays the part of Edie.

    The best thing about this feature is that the “young artists” aren’t all between 19 and 23 years old.
