ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
Joseph (b.1968) has presented his work throughout Asia, Europe, South America, and the US. He studied audiovisuals at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and is a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in Performance. Ravens is a two time recipient of the Illinois Arts Council Fellowship for New Performance Forms. Other grants, awards, and opportunities have allowed him to build an international reputation. Ravens was included in Live Biennale Vancouver (Canada 2015); 20th Bienal Internacional de Curitiba (Brazil 2013); Venice International Performance Art Week (Italy 2012); and Intrude: Art and Life 366 at Zendai MoMA, Shanghai (China 2008). Ravens is founder and director of Defibrillator Gallery, and co-founder and director of Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival. He is recognized for his work as an artist, an educator, and a curator.
Quinn is a multimedia performance artist, activist and curator based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work addresses human connection, social injustice and ritual. In 2014, Dukes founded Performance Is Alive a website and curatorial project devoted exclusively to performance. She is a tireless advocate for performance art and higher education via appointments at Grace Exhibition Space (Brooklyn, NY), the School of Visual Arts (New York, NY) and Satellite Art Show (Miami, NYC & SXSW).
Jeff has been performing art for the last 20 years, both nationally and internationally. He enjoys the bicycle, the hammer, the saw, the wood, his wife and son, his family, his friends, his work. (…except sometimes he doesn’t enjoy these things as much; it depends.) He is the son and grandson of far more practical people, which he tries to express in his art. His mother thinks it is time to stop getting naked in front of people and privately he thinks she is probably right; and something about death.
