Marilyn Arsem, USA

 

Born 1951, lives and works in Boston.

Marilyn Arsem has been creating live events since 1975, ranging from solo performances to large-scale interactive works incorporating installation and performance.  She has presented her work throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America.  Arsem is the founder of Mobius, Inc., a Boston-based interdisciplinary collaborative of artists.  She is a full-time faculty member at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she teaches performance art, and is a graduate advisor.

In the last decade, Arsem has focused on creating works in response to specific sites, engaging with the immediate landscape and materiality of the location, its history, use or politics.  Sites have included a former Cold War missile base in the United States, a 15th century Turkish bath in Macedonia, an aluminum factory in Argentina, and the site of the Spanish landing in the Philippines.  In Sete, Marilyn will work in the open air markets, reflecting on the materials and activities at hand.
