Ethyl Eichelberger Award Ceremony 2013 featuring Mr. Pussy
Vimeo just adding a rating system to their videos, and not a moment too soon for PS122! This video of the 2013 Ethyl Eichelberger award ceremony features a “mature-rated” performance by the one and only Mr. Pussy to honor this year’s winner, Mike Iveson!
The Ethyl Eichelberger Award is a commissioning award given to an artist or group that exemplifies Ethyl’s larger-than-life style and generosity of spirit. The recipient of the Award receives a show in the upcoming season at Performance Space 122 as well as a commission toward its creation.
Ethyl Eichelberger was a seminal performer, a landmark and a legend. His work inspired his contemporaries and those who came after him. His spirit and artistic adventurousness was an intrinsic component of what came to be viewed as the Performance Space 122 aesthetic. The Ethyl Eichelberger Award was created to honor Ethyl’s memory and to create a bridge between PS122’s past and future.
