The third and final performance before the show comes down! Last chance to witness and be a part of the 3 performances comprising “Artist Tour Guide”, Saturday June 14, 2pm at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in New York, 1 Bowling Green. This final performance will conclude my work in the gallery taking place amongst the historical and contemporary work on display, as a respondence to the exhibition “Before and after the Horizon: Anishinaabe Artists of the Great Lakes”. Throughout the course of the exhibit I lead 3 tours, not as an archeologist or docent but as an artist. This performance provides an “in-the-moment” encounter with me in the museum and emphasizes the value of shared experience in the creation and memory of a work of art. As a work in progress; each tour informed later ones, creating a living, ever evolving art experience that is the essence of this performance. Previous performances were held on December 7 at 2pm 2014 during Indian Market, and March 15 at 11am as part of Celebrate Anishinaabe Art. This event promises to be an intimate event. A self-portrait silhouette on glass provides a physical component of the work. By inserting a physical presence at all times, my outline doubles as both a space holder and starting point for the performance.
Performances are free and open to the public.
