Lone Star Explosion 2014 is Houston’s second international performance art biennale. It is taking place on February 19 – 23, 2014 in three of Houston’s venerated performance art venues: Box 13, The Art League and Notsuoh as well as online and in public space.

Lone Star Explosion 2014 seeks to showcase performance art that pushes the artist and audience in new ways. We shine a spotlight on performance art that questions fundamental assumptions about the way we experience time, space, relationships, the self, society, and sexuality. Visiting artists from around the world have been hand-picked for their insight and expansion on themes and practices currently explored by Houston performance artists. The unique, rebellious beauty of Houston’s own performance art will join with the brilliant expression of our visiting artists, creating an exchange of epic proportion. We intend for every participant to leave the festival full of new inspiration and greater possibility.
