Frieze New York 2014 is just days away, and you know what that means: hours of shimmying through crowds, moving from one exhibitor to another, and being forced to socialize. All of it can get pretty overwhelming. Thankfully, fairgoers have "ANTIFREEZE" to rescue them this year. On May 9, the same day Frieze New York kicks off, the New York Performance Artists Collective will be putting on an evening of performances as a sort of "palate cleanser" of art fair frenzy. (Haha, get it? Frieze New York ... "ANTIFREEZE.")
Artists Colin Self, Joseph Keckler, and Dynasty Handbag will take the stage with a string of narratives and stand-up acts that are sure to make the audience laugh. "The three artists play with various personas to skewer consumerism, gender conventions, and fine art with humor and self-deprecation," the press release reads. The event will also see Zackary Drucker hit the stage as emcee.
The performances begin May 9 at 8 p.m. at the Abrons Arts Center on 466 Grand St., New York. Although the event is free, there is limited seating so you have to RSVP. For more information about the "ANTIFREEZE," head to NYPAC's website.
