ArtBeat/LIVE: Abraham Ferraro’s “Art Course”

Monday, July 25th, 2011

What happens when performance art meets obstacle course? “Art Course,” of course.

This is a short video of Abraham Ferraro’s “Art Course” as performed at the MarketPlace Gallery in Albany on Friday, June 10.

As Ferraro describes it: “An Art obstacle course that begins by smashing my way out of a 4 foot drywall cube with 2 claw hammers! Walls will be broken, barbed wire hoops passed, wiffle ball bats swinging, boxing gloves punching, and flying Ferraro…all lead to a leap of faith and end at a giant neon ART sign!”

You can also see another of Ferraro’s works, “Mail-able 2,” in the 75th Mohawk-Hudson Regional at the Albany Institute of History and Art through Sunday, September 4. At last Thursday’s awards ceremony, Ferraro’s piece was honored with a pair of awards, one of which was the coveted Purchase Award.
