Raúl de Nieves: If I’m not dead then why did you bury me by Jake Dibeler

The Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to present five performances conceptualized and set in motion by Raúl de Nieves, the second lead participant in the ongoing exhibition Endless Shout. Endless Shout—a six-month exhibition that offers improvisation and collectivity beyond music or dance to also include conversation, poetry, visual art, construction, etc.—asks how, why, where, and when performance and improvisation can take place inside a museum.

Join us for a presentation of Jake Dibeler’s If I’m not dead then why did you bury me. Jake Dibeler’s performances are a self-reflexive regurgitation of pop culture, queer body politics and death fantasies, an uneasy interplay between humor and horror. His works are scenes of self-portraiture enacted by several characters—all representing facets of the artist—via diaristic spoken word musings, splintered pop songs, prosthetics, props and blood.

This event is free and open to the public. Register here.
