The ACKER Awards IV  2017 Presented by Clayton Patterson 

THE ACKER Awards were created by Alan Kaufman in San Francisco and Clayton Patterson in New York.  
The  ACKER Award is a way to pay tribute to members of the avant-garde arts community who have made outstanding contributions in their discipline in defiance of convention, and to those who have served their fellow writers and artists in outstanding ways. The Acker Awards are named after novelist Kathy Acker, who in her life and work exemplified the risk-taking and uncompromising dedication that identifies the true avant-garde artist.

This year, February 12th, at Theater 80, 80 St. Mark’s.
doors open @6PM. Starts @7PM.  Open to the Public – Free
MC Phoebe Legere assisted by Clayton Patterson.

In NYC Patterson creates a box which is decorated every year by a different artist.  This year the artist for the box is John Gagliano @ Overthrow Boxing the box is sponsored by Joey Goodwin @ Overthrow Boxing, produced by Clayton Patterson

The are 40 boxes and each of the boxes contains something that each recipient adds which represents their work.  The box is like a group show, a treasure chest, a time capsule, an educational tool which enlightens the person who goes through the box and the viewer will get a glimpse relating to a recipient.

Each box has a biography booklet, printed by the Villager Newspaper & designed by Michael Shirey Villager Art Director.  The bio booklet, has a visual image of each recipient, as well as, a short bio.

Between the ceremony, the bio booklet, the video and photos from event, the press and the years doing this, a large overview is being created which  representing a wide view of a creative community.  The Grammy’s are music, the Oscars film, the Obie’s theater; the ACKERS represents all facets of the creative community.
