Lives and works in Boston, MA, US.

Marilyn Arsem has been creating live events since 1975, from solo gallery performances to large-scale, site-specific works at festivals, conferences, alternative spaces, galleries, museums and universities in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Most recently she has focused on creating site-specific performances that are not planned in advance, but made in response to a location that is selected on arrival. 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.

At the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, Arsem will present the long durational performance Marking Time, meditations on time, on what is needed to move forward through time, on moving through one’s life.

She further will present with the Boston-based Mobius Inc. a selection of three decades of performance art photographed by Bob Raymond of Mobius Artists Group, under the title this moment: missives from another world.
