THE PURPLE JESTER continues our exploration of the concept of living art-wear. This cross-media performance art project is inspired by medieval European art. The goal is to create a futuristic vision of the art of Hieronymus Bosch, merging historic design concepts with contemporary materials, including production techniques that employ recycled textiles. The show will be presented in an interactive, multi-media live performance environment. Played by performance artist, Willard Morgan, the Purple Jester finds himself traveling through space and time on a quest for romantic fulfillment in a series of seven dream landscapes. Each dream confronts the Jester with an immersive installation in which he must negotiate phantasmagoric manifestations of human realities, including hunger, war, gossip, and sexual desire. The Purple Jester transcends conflict through the strategic implementation of humorous acts.

IDEAS CITY Street Fest, May 4th from 11am–6pm
Our booth at IDEAS CITY StreetFest on Saturday, May 4th from 11am–6pm will be an open studio where Terry Smith will work with the public to create drawings of capitals using stencils, spray paint, crayon, pencil. Hand-drawn maps will be available for self-guided tours of Capital Revisited, and Terry will conduct two scheduled tours of his work at 12PM and 3PM. Sign up will be first-come, first-serve on May 4th.
The Drawing Center has commissioned artist Terry Smith to create Capital Revisited, a series of wall and window drawings of an architectural capital, referencing Capital, a large-scale drawing Smith created at the British Museum in 1995. Presented as part of IDEAS CITY 2013, the New Museum's biennial festival created to explore the concept of "untapped capital", Capital Revisitedwill be found in sections around the Bowery neighborhood on unexpected indoor and outdoor surfaces. In this context, Smith's project will be a poignant and mischievous investigation of the use and visibility of architecture in public space.
Open: Sat, March 30th - Sat, April 21st

Debtolution is back!!!
Republic Worldwide is proud to announce its participation in the Fountain Art Fair NYC 2013 at the historic 69th Regiment Armory. We are excited to be a part of the centennial anniversary of the original1913 Armory show at the original location. From the initial Armory Show to Duchamp's controversial readymade exhibited under the same roof in 1917, this historic venue is perfectly suited to Fountain's reputation for presenting the delightfully unexpected and scandalously revolutionary.
