"Taxi!! Taxi!! Taxi!!" Performance Art by Irvin Morazan for Art In Odd Places 2010 (Chance)

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.

Hi Noel,

Thanks for coming to our opening Event. Have you seen the other artists in action along 14th street?

I've seen the guys from BroLab doing Pump 14 on the same evening. Blogged about them a few days ago.
