Lives and works in Boston,
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.
