Part of the group show called CHANCE: ART IN ODD PLACES is a performance art by IRVIN MORAZAN, "Taxi!! Taxi!! Taxi!!". The artist Irvin Morazan attempts to hail a taxi while wearing an intimidating Mayan headdress and eating a bag of Cheez Doodles. “It’s really about absurdity, and thinking about how cabs have that discriminating moment when they’re deciding who to pick up. This is where the chance element comes in.” I chanced upon Mr. Morazan last Friday, October 1 at 14th Street, Union Square. He is expected to perform again on October 8 (5–6:30 PM).
Art in Odd Places (AiOP) is New York City’s annual public art and performance festival, taking place from October 1 to October 10, 2010, along 14th Street in Manhattan from Avenue C to the Hudson River. The festival features approximately 30 artists from New York and beyond, who apply their practice to an unconventional structure—playing off the idiosyncrasies inherent to the urban plane.
