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.
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.
Growing up, my mother told me I was too smart to be an artist, that I could help the world more by becoming a brainiac chemist, and sometimes I think she’s right. I’ve worked at three movie theaters, four libraries and one small town garden center.
They always tell you not to judge a book by its cover, but doesn’t the cover function as a form of communication? I’m just so curious about the world and its surfaces — there are so many spectacular glossy surfaces, on objects and on people. I love to look at food and celebrity personalities and plastic packaging. It all seems so frivolous, but with a little inspection, it turns out everything is available on the surface.
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).
Sandy has been making performances for more than thirty years. Her work has evolved through various educational influences (study visual art, dance, voice, literature and history at Smith College; studying performance, video, drawing, stained glass at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) and collaborative influences. She draws inspiration from the settings and the history of the places she performs (from abandoned bear cages to basements to historic museum halls; from Beijing to Boston and Poland to Havana), as well as from her own inner landscape. Our collective human responsibility for the imbalances we have imposed upon our world are the motivation behind her current work.
