Product Description

We are pleased to present the first catalogue raisonée about the American artist Billy. X Curmano:

"He’s the only human being in recorded history to claim the distinction of swimming the entire length of the Mississippi River.
He was buried alive for three days in a much ballyhooed effort to bring art to the spirirt world that included a New Orleans-style funeral complete with Christlike resurrection. He once imprisoned himself in a tiger cage to protest the inhumane treatment of POWs in Vietnam. Maverick? Eccentric? Full-blown madman? Billy X. Curmano will be delighted to let you decide."
