ExA 2017 in the Media

“ExA filled a niche that Houston has a long history of but has recently lacked: a strong presentation of young and subversive performance art.”Brandon Zech, Glasstire

“I think festivals like ExA create important, transgressive moments to both connect and educate the general public to just how broad a swath of thinkers are out there in the world. Seeing artists like Chris Stevens take to the streets outside of Notsuoh and engage passersby is an important part of connecting and demonstrating that other viewpoints are important in the world. This has never been more crucial than it is now. Either by drawing in others’ eyes via taking to the streets or piquing people’s curiosity enough for them to buy a festival badge, performance art and festivals in particular are perfect for bursting us all out of our safe bubbles.”Michael Anthony Garcia, Conflict of Interest
