Curmano releasing his latest book
Artist/adventurer Billy X. Curmano is releasing his latest book, "Futurism's B. Son." The piece documents decades of eccentric work from somewhat traditional objects to conceptual plans and live art. It includes three days buried alive, a lengthwise Mississippi River swim as performance and environmental statement, 40-day Death Valley Desert fast and performances for cows and other under-served audiences.
Published by Mark Pezinger Verlag, Vienna, and released in Kassel, Germany, this August, the book will hold its U.S. release at the Museum Of Modern Art during the "New York Art Book Fair" - Sept. 27 to 30.
Curmano was at the Anderson Center in Red Wing last April.
