Raul de Nieves performs as part American PUSSY FAGGOT! Realness on January 7, 2012 at Public Assembly. Previous appearances include “PUSSY FAGGOT! Queer Shame Revival” on June 25 at EveryBooty: N. 6th Pride at Public Assembly; “Rimbaud Was A Pussy Faggot!” on May 29 at Cameo Gallery; and at PUSSY FAGGOT! at The Delancey in August 2010 and October 2011. Raul is a bona fide pussy faggot!
Raul de Nieves functions and dis-functions with a unique hand-made material language, building an esoteric linear narrative through decadent multimedia performances and playfully obsessive mixed-media installations; a joyous mythology mirrors a childish tantrum or the cosmic interplay of manifestation and dissolution, asserting an excessive form of identity combining violent rebellion and reverent craftsmanship.
