-The Workshop-

Crossing Borders: Public Space Performances is a workshop, which will focus on the intercultural movement of the Performance train. Marilyn Arsem will facilitate 7 days on and off the train drawing from her rich experience and knowledge as a performance maker and teacher. She will create an explorative and critical space for investigating the impact of performance in public spaces and what role it can play as a multicultural and mobile art form.

-Marilyn Arsem-

Marilyn Arsem has been creating live events since 1975, from solo gallery performances to large-scale, site-specific works. Arsem has presented work in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. She recently completed a 100 day performance at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Many of her works are durational in nature, and minimal in actions and materials. Created in response to the site, they engage with the immediate landscape and materiality of the location, its history, use, or politics.

She is a member (and founder) of Mobius, Inc., a Boston-based collaborative of interdisciplinary artists. She taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for 27 years, establishing one of the most extensive programs internationally in visually-based performance art.
