Punch Me Panda by Nate Hill

Nate Hill, the performance artist who made his services available via cell phone previously as Death Bear, is doing house calls again as Punch Me Panda (pictured). The new performance character premiered yesterday at #TheSocialGraph, an exhibition curated by art blogger Hrag Vartanian at Outpost (through November 27). If you can’t make it out to Ridgewood, but live in Brooklyn and really need to get some aggression out of your system, text 347-742-2293 or tweet @natehill, and Punch Me Panda will pay you a visit, and you can punch him for a penny. He’s only taking punch orders through Saturday, so don’t miss your chance. This morning he tweeted the official tally after one day: “To my family back home, if you are reading this. So far I’ve made about 67 cents which is like $800 in our country?” (Hyperallergic, photos by Teresa Nasty)
