ENDURANCE RESUME

ENDURANCE RESUME












Linda Mary Montano has performed endurances and methodologies which attempt to not only solve everyday life traumas and issues but also magically erase the boundaries between time and space by extending actions to extremes so that everydayness disappears and consciousness is the only "element" left. She accepted Tehching Hsieh's invitation to be tied to him by a rope for a year for his One Year Performance, never touching, and subsequently performed her endurance: 14 Years of Living Art, an exploration of the Hindu Chakra theological system which suggests paying attention to both inside and outside so that one's mind, heart and glands can change for the better. Her video MITCHELL'S DEATH, is a classic and has been shown internationally and her five books: ART IN EVERYDAY LIFE; YOU TOO ARE A PERFORMANCE ARTIST; MILDRED'S DEATH; LETTERS FROM LINDA M MONTANO; & PERFORMANCE ARTISTS TALKING IN THE 80'S, are profound explorations of Montano's vision and spiritual-feminist take on life, healing and art. Montano has not only performed but has also taught performance art, sculpture and the history of performance throughout the world; and you can view more at: www.lindamontano.com. And her blog: lindamarymontano/BlogSpot.com.

Linda  from Greg -

Hi there.. 

So good to connect with you the other day. I left the conversation inspired and felt that this was something we are meant to do, so let's do keep in dialogue.

here's my latest on HUFFPO

Here are some potential sites / areas that come to mind in POLAND from my research and some, from visits.



 Monument To The Fallen & Murdered in The East  (located in WARSAW)
Amazing site/ haunting . in between two streets. I've attached pictures as well.

&
 Warsaw Uprising Museum grounds.



 Village of Symbark - a park dedicated to deported Polish people sent to Russian Gulags
here lies the House of the Siberian Deportee . It is the reconstruction of a Soviet gulag and a locomotive with carriages. Here they commemorate the tragic fate of the Polish people deported to Siberia during the second world war in "trains headed for nowhere". 




Belzec - site of FIRST extermination operated in Poland by Germans   ++  would be ideal me thinks.
Located in the Lublin district of South East Poland



 Black Madonna of CzÄ™stochowa



 Auschwitz/ Berkenau
When I was there a few years ago, I learned more about the neighboring town and its economic depression over the decades-an interesting footnote. How can a town thrive near a death camp.?



 the Polish Army Museum 
(houses the Katyn Museum, which, from my understanding will be  having its very own building beginning in Sept of this year.



 Nasielsk, Poland
thought of this, too, as it may be good to go to a significant small town that experienced something as well,  
for instance. this town and its hardships/ deaths was nearly forgotten until recently, when GLENN KURTZ wrote a  book about it and what happened. 
I wrote about him back in NOVEMBER.

March 27, 2015
N-291 2014-15

[Subways A,C,E, B,D,M to West 4th Street; 6 line to Astor Place; R train to 8th Street].
A performance by Montano and a reception will follow the panel discussion.
  • WHAT: A panel discussion celebrating the work of contemporary feminist performance artist, Linda Montano. Performance and reception to follow.
  • WHO: Linda Montano and panelists: Karen Finley; Martha Wilson; Linda Weintraub; Kathy Brew
  • WHEN & WHERE: April 14, 2015 at 6:30pm, Fales Library, 3rd floor, Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, 70 Washington Square South (at LaGuardia Place). [Subways A,C,E, B,D,M to West 4th Street; 6 line to Astor Place; R train to 8th Street].
Space is limited; the public should please rsvp.bobst@nyu.edu, or 212-992-9018 with guest name(s) and title/date of the event.
Linda Mary Montano is a germinal/seminal figure in contemporary feminist performance art. Her work is starkly autobiographical, and is often concerned with personal transformation, using artistic ritual to focus on spiritual energy states, silence, and the erasure of art/life boundaries.
Montano’s early performances include “Handcuff” (1973) in which she was physically tied to artist Tom Marioni for three days, and “Three Day Blindfold” (1974). In 1983 and 1984, Montano participated in Tehching Hsieh’s One Year Performance, in which the two artists were bound to each other by a short length of rope 24 hours a day for a year. Montano’s next work was “Seven Years of Living Art”(1984-1991), an endurance performance based on the Chakras. For each year of the performance, Montano wore a single color of clothing, spending a portion of each day in a colored room listening to a designated tone. This was followed by “Another Seven Years of Living Art.
About the panelists, who will talk about Montano’s work in video, ritual, collaboration, and her place in the history of performance art:
Kathy Brew is an award-winning independent video maker whose experience spans independent documentaries to experimental work and public television productions. Her most recent documentary, DESIGN IS ONE: LELLA & MASSIMO VIGNELLI, is currently in distribution. She is also a media arts curator and writer, published in Documentary Magazine, The Independent, and High Performance, and she teaches at the New School and School of Visual Arts.
Karen Finley is a New York based artist whose raw and transgressive performances have long provoked controversy and debate. She has performed and exhibited her art internationally, with performances at Lincoln Center, the American Repertory Theatre, and The ICA London. She has received numerous awards and fellowships, including a Guggenheim, 2 Obies, 2 Bessies, and MS. Magazine’s Woman Of The Year. She teaches in the Art and Public Policy Program at New York University.
Linda Weintraub is a curator, educator, artist, and author of several popular books about contemporary art. Her recent writing explores the vanguard intersection between art and environmentalism, including TO LIFE! Eco Art In Pursuit of a Sustainable Planet. Weintraub has served as the Director of the Bard College museum, and was the Henry Luce Professor of Emerging arts at Oberlin College. Her current book projects include Art-is-an Environmental Health Clinic (author) and In The Making: Creative Options For Contemporary Architecture (editor).
Martha Wilson will appear at the panel in virtual form. Wilson is a pioneering feminist artist who during the past four decades has created innovative photographic and performance works that explore her female subjectivity through role-playing and “invasions” of other people’s personae. In 1976 she founded Franklin Furnace, an artist-run space in New York that champions the exploration, promotion, and preservation of artists’ books, installation and performance art, video, and art online.
About Fales Library and Special Collections:
The Fales Library, comprising nearly 355,000 volumes and over 10,000 linear feet of archive and manuscript materials, houses the Fales Collection of rare books and manuscripts in English and American literature, the Downtown Collection, the Riot Grrrl Collection, the Marion Nestle Food Studies Collection, and the general special collections of the NYU Libraries. The Fales Collection was given to NYU in 1957 by DeCoursey Fales in memory of his father, Haliburton Fales. It is especially strong in English literature from the middle of the 18th century to the present, documenting developments in the novel. The Downtown Collection, founded in 1993, documents the downtown New York art, performance, and literary scenes from 1975 to the present and is extremely rich in archival holdings, including extensive film and video. The goal of the Downtown Collection is to comprehensively collect the full range of artistic practices and output of the Downtown scene, regardless of format. This research collection, built on a documentary strategy, supports the research of students and scholars who are interested in the intersection of contemporary art with other forms of cultural and artistic expression.

The NYU Division of Libraries holds over 4 million volumes and comprises of five libraries in Manhattan and one each in Brooklyn, Abu Dhabi and Shanghai,. Its flagship, the Elmer Holmes Bobst Library on Washington Square, receives 2.6 million visits annually. Around the world the Libraries offers access to more than 1.2 million electronic journals, books, and databases. For more information about the NYU Libraries, please visit http://library.nyu.edu

MEDICAL RESUME



 MEDICAL RESUME
Linda Mary Montano was born in 1942. In a career spanning over fifty years as a performance artist, she has created works in a variety of disciplines that explore the possibility of eliminating the distinction between art and life, including videos, books, installations,  live durational performances, workshops, teaching, and Art/Life Counseling. Montano believes that art is a transforming medicine and that it has a profound effect on curing life issues, trauma and PTSD. Spiritual inquiry, recycling, living simply and conserving, via art & life, have always been her interests.
