Admin Reveal: An Evening With Miss Lady Salad
by Shawn Escarciga (Miss Lady Salad) [Shawn Escarciga]
January 25 – 27, 2024
at Brick Aux – 628 Metropolitan Ave
The veil between URL and IRL thins once more for ADMIN REVEAL. Darling internet pest and real life gayguy Miss Lady Salad welcomes f-slurs far and wide to journey through their valley of memes, celebrating three years of a meme-a-day (or 3) with a little talking, a little sharing, a little durational performance, 15mg of generic Lexapro, and a dream.
Created by Miss Lady Salad (Shawn Escarciga)
This work was made possible, in part, by the Franklin Furnace FUND 2023-24, supported by Jerome Foundation and the members and friends of Franklin Furnace Archive.
FREE DURATIONAL PERFORMANCE January 27, 12:30-2pm – Miss Lady Salad will sit IRL working on their many screens. Visitors are invited to use the Miss Lady Salad selfie stick to take a photo with the artist against their meme backdrop, but do not expect a response… the internet is calling them.
Shawn Escarciga (Miss Lady Salad) is a multidisciplinary maker, administrator, and connector working between performance, collage/memes, comedy, and curation. Shawn’s work has explored labor and class; questioning value systems and hierarchies; and ways to balance being silly with tangible moves towards equity and care. Shawn thinks a lot about classism, visibility, access, the internet, intimacy amongst f-slurs, communication, being a little shit, and what it would be like to live in a country that supports non-commercial artists and poor people. Their work has been seen throughout galleries, museums, sex parties, and DIY spaces across New York City, domestically, and abroad. They are a staff member of Visual AIDS, the founder and co-leader of the NYC Low-Income Artist and Freelancer Relief Fund, and a recent recipient of a Franklin Furnace FUND grant.
THE EXPONENTIAL FESTIVAL
JANUARY’S BROOKLYN-BASED THEATRE FESTIVAL
~ A pleasure, a mess, a thrill, and a dream. ~
Exponential is a month-long January festival dedicated to New York City-based emerging artists working in experimental performance. The participants in this multi-artist, multi-venue festival are committed to ecstatic creativity in the face of commercialism. Exponential is driven by inclusiveness and a diversity of artists, forms, and ideas coupled with utopian resource-sharing, mentoring and the championing of risky, rigorous work in eclectic fields. theexponentialfestival.org
