Taraka Larson launches her new title XTREME NOW from perfect wave and C&B Publications. Join us for a special lecture.
XTREME NOW is the latest bold new manifesto by Taraka Larson, pushing Prince Rama’s self-proclaimed philosophy of the Now Age further and exploring life as a continuous daring act of performance art. Premiering at the NY Art Book fair, it was written as a metaphysical treatise to accompany Prince Rama’s latest album, examining the phenomenon of extreme sports through the macro lens of history as well as prophesying a future of “speed art” that fuses extreme sports, time travel and the sublime. Part critical analysis, part science fiction, and part metaphysics, Xtreme Now outlines a future where energy drinks sponsor art museums and beauty is rated by speed, all the while seducing the attention back to a dizzying state of eternal presence— “A Now Age Book of the Dead”.
