David Leslie's Impact Addict Videos

Directed by Larry Fessenden. (NR)

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., March 21, 2001

Performance artist and UT art professor David Leslie (whose New York performance, in which viewers were offered $1,000 to knock out the artist, was mentioned in the Feb. 23 "News of the Weird") is known ­ for obvious reasons ­ as the Impact Addict. A former UT sculpture student who later moved to New York and switched to performance art, Leslie has been called by The New York Times the "Evel Knievel of performance art." Celebrated indie actor/filmmaker Larry Fessenden (Bad Habits) filmed some of Leslie's shows and the documentaries ­ "Stunt: A Musical Motion Picture," and "The Rocket Movie" will be screened during this lecture by the artist.
