A traffic light swooshes past our heads. We duck down under the High Line. From the roof, artist Jennifer Catron leads the tour group to chant “LARRY! LARRY! LARRY!” directly outside one of Larry Gagosian’s 15 galleries, but, unsurprisingly, he doesn’t come out to say hello. Artist Paul Outlaw is at the wheel of this hand-modified auto-beast.

New York’s “most unboring” performance artist duo Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw are good at spectacle. Tonight at Allegra LaViola gallery, they’re going to strap themselves into a dangerous-looking DIY carousel wheel that is going to spin and repeatedly, continuously dip them into a vat of golden liquid.

In case you missed the amazing feats of the Art Handling Olympics last Sunday, there were races with cardboard boxes on wheels, whiskey shots and dumpling gulps. Then, some speed leveling of Hang in There Kitties and a lead painting “Static Hold” for a cruel German curator (“Nien! Lower! Higher!”). Speed packaging of art (MC Shane […]
