Mobius is pleased to present Marilyn Arsem, in their ongoing series of artist talks, Reports from Afield.
In conversation with artist Sandrine Schaefer, Marilyn will reflect on her recent project,100 Ways to Consider Time, a durational performance which occurred six hours a day every day for 100 days, at the Museum of Fine Art, Boston, from November 9, 2015 to February 19, 2016. Marilyn was the recipient of the MFA’s 2015 Maud Morgan Prize, of which this exhibition was a component. For more information visit: www.mfa.org/exhibitions/marilyn-arsem. A Q&A with the audience will follow the talk.
Many of Marilyn's works are durational in nature, and minimal in actions and materials. Created in response to a 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.
Marilyn Arsem has been creating live events since 1975, from solo gallery performances to large-scale, site-specific works. Arsem has presented work at festivals, conferences, alternative spaces, galleries, museums and universities in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
Reports from Afield is an ongoing program of Mobius, featuring artists who have worked abroad and/or in a public arena, in which they share their projects and documentation with a local audience.
Please join us for a reception before and after the talk where Mobius’ recent publication “this moment: missives from another world,” thirty years of performances photographed by Bob Raymond will be available for purchase in paperback or hardcover. It is also available to order online at: at Mobius.org ( http://www.mobius.org/store/ )
