Where in the World is Nathan Carter?
2008

In April of 2008, the Brooklyn based artist, Nathan Carter, was scheduled to speak at the University of Kentucky and participate in a tour of downtown Lexington. He unexpectedly cancelled the engagement at the last minute after being offered another opportunity in New York City. Feeling very far of in the periphery and ditched by the Center, Matt Jones, Bill Santen, and I created an effigy of the absent artist and continued the tour of downtown Lexington with Nathan Carter as scheduled. The performance continued the following weekend when we traveled from Lexington to Brooklyn, New York in order to locate Nathan Carter and deliver the effigy and documentation of the tour we conducted without him. In shock and remorse, Carter responded by giving us a tour of Brooklyn's art district and the first year graduate art show at Columbia University.
