I am Chris Purdie is a performance art piece involving thirty-five performers playing the role of visual artist Chris Purdie. The cast wears the "Chris Purdie uniform" and performs the role as they interact with patrons attending the artist's reception. For the duration of the exhibition, there will be at least one "Chris Purdie" in the gallery during their hours.

After constant pressure from the real chris purdie

This Chris Purdie has decided to do a blog posting. It is tough being a Chris Purdie. I have to constantly ask myself if i am being an authentic Chris Purdie. Being a Chris Purdie feels like you are one of those uncle Sam characters on the side of the road begging people in cars to do there taxes. Everyone knows you are not the real uncle Sam but you do represent the government and if you haven't done your taxes yet then you feel the same as if big Sam was pointing right at you.
