Performa 17 BIENNIAL NYC

African Artist Kendell Geers loves to hate and hates to love the father of conceptual art. In this spoken word ritual killing of the father, historical fact, mythology, fiction and fantasy are blended in a quasi-art historical spoken work performance. Everything you thought you knew about Marcel Duchamp will be changed forever as he is exposed as spy, Rosicrucian, initiate, sexual predator, secret society master general and thief. Tighten the seatbelts of your expectations as you are taken on a guided tour, racing through time in a spectacular detour of history, by a master trickster of the spoken word.
