Brian Feldman is an award-winning performance artist and actor. The recipient of three Arts and Humanities Fellowships in Theatre (2017, 2018, 2021) and a Projects, Events, and Festivals grant (2019) from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, a 2011 State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship (Interdisciplinary), and three grant awards from United Arts of Central Florida (2008, 2011, 2015), he has also been named Best Performance Artist by Orlando Weekly (2008, 2009) and Washington City Paper (2018). He lives in Washington, Douglass Commonwealth, where he has presented work in #All8Wards and 30 D.C. neighborhoods. As the news website DCist noted, “In a city that has an advocacy group exploring how to ‘make D.C. weird’ – and is still struggling – Brian Feldman is a shining beacon of eccentricity.” His work has been featured on television, radio, in print, and online, earning critical comparisons to the likes of Marina Abramović, David Blaine, John Cage, Christo, Marcel Duchamp, Tehching Hsieh, and Andy Kaufman. Since August 2003, he has presented 400+ performances of 130+ projects at 175+ venues and festivals in cities worldwide via Brian Feldman Projects, one of the world’s premier presenters of experimental time-based art.
