SPEND 14 NIGHTS WITH GIO BLACK PETER!

GPB WILL GUEST-CURATE TAGZEEN.COM EASTER SUNDAY THROUGH SUNDAY 4 MAY 2014.

Gio Black Peter (born Giovanni Paolo Andrade Guevara) is a New York based performance artist as well as an ardent visual artist.  He examines text and subject, truth and fakery, rebellion and authority.  His subversive work has quickly earned him a name in the downtown New York scene of young emerging artists who participate in today’s dialogue about the deconstruction of high profile, white box presentation and the desire to raise art awareness.  At the core of Black Peter’s thinking is the idea that the life of art depends on the viewer’s willingness to suspend his or her rational thoughts and play into the believability of lies and realistic falsehoods.  Familiarity and a seductive aesthetic draw the viewer back to Black Peter’s art- a visceral exploration of vulnerability and self-reflection.
