Adrian Parsons, “Everynone,” at Transformer

If "Everynone" at Transformer guaranteed anything to viewers, it was the opportunity to see a delirious Adrian Parsons. And sure enough, when I saw him, at hour 46 of his continuous 48-hour drawing installation—during which he hadn't slept—he looked like one zonked-out Adrian Parsons. I'd seen him in this state at least once before: back [...]

Drop into any Brightest Young Things party or Pink Line Project event with a DJ, a food truck, and some graffiti, and there’s a good chance you’re going to see some performance art. Not, mind you, the Viennese Actionism of the late 1960s or the NEA Four of the early 1990s or Marina Abramović trying [...]

Fleetness and Light: Projecting on Washington

Crow at the establishmentarianism of Official Washington, with its chunky buildings and drab marble; turn up your nose at the fed­eral government’s sprawling dominion over District acreage; whimper over its dull regality, all honor and remembrance and boring, boring history. But don’t deny this: Downtown Wash­ington is brimming with big, flat space.

The Save the Corcoran Coalition has done what no one else opposed to the potential sale of the downtown D.C. home of the Corcoran Gallery of Art has done in the month since news broke of the Corcoran's plans to consider a move: collected some signatures.

Vestibule organizers Josef Palermo, Joseph Orzal, and Adrian Parsons showed up shortly after noon on Friday with [...]

Arts organizations, he says, should stop daydreaming about how everything will return to normal once the recession ends; instead, they should be restrategizing. "Some organizations are going to develop exciting [...]
