The veil between URL and IRL thins once more for ADMIN REVEAL. Darling internet pest and real life gayguy Miss Lady Salad welcomes f-slurs far and wide to journey through their valley of memes, celebrating three years of a meme-a-day (or 3) with a little talking, a little sharing, a little durational performance, 15mg of generic Lexapro, and a dream.

Miss Lady Salad (Shawn Escarciga) celebrates three years of a memes-a-day with the return of ADMIN REVEAL, a project for the terminally online and those who love them. One part elevated show and tell, one part durational performance, ADMIN REVEAL highlights 3000+ Miss Lady Salad memes and the cressy girl who made them (along with a few special guests). Prior to the evening meme-fest, Miss Lady Salad will sit for open gallery hours where guests are welcome to come take a selfie at the altar of MLS (just don’t expect to speak with the artist IRL, they’ll be busy doing stuff URL).
This work was made possible, in part, by the Franklin Furnace FUND 2023-24, supported by Jerome Foundation and the members and friends of Franklin Furnace Archive.
Shawn Escarciga (Miss Lady Salad) is a multidisciplinary maker, administrator, and connector working between performance, collage/memes, comedy, and curation. Shawn's work has explored labor and class; questioning value systems and hierarchies; and ways to balance being silly with tangible moves towards equity and care. Shawn thinks a lot about classism, visibility, access, the internet, intimacy amongst f-slurs, communication, being a little shit, and what it would be like to live in a country that supports non-commercial artists and poor people. Their work has been seen throughout galleries, museums, sex parties, and DIY spaces across New York City, domestically, and abroad. They are a staff member of Visual AIDS, the founder and co-leader of the NYC Low-Income Artist and Freelancer Relief Fund, and a recent recipient of a Franklin Furnace FUND grant.
