Join groundbreaking performance artist Linda Mary Montano , Alec Duffy and the 7 GLANDETTES for an interactive performance experience at JACK, the new arts space in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The evening will feature a talk/performance by Montano, which will include a screening of Mark Shaw’s video, Linda Mary Montano Celebrates Mother Teresa’s 100th Birthday at the Empire State Building, documenting Montano’s 2010 public performance as Mother Teresa with four "guardians" (Andrea Dominquez, Miss Toni Silver, Zhen Heinmann and Leah Aron). She will also present two other videos, STARVED SURVIVORS, and WATER ANGELS, edited by video artist, TOBE CAREY.
A 12-hour lock-in will follow, for which Montano has selected seven participants from a pool of applicants. The group will stay the night together, with Montano leading participants in a workshop, as well as eating and resting.
Linda Mary Montano is a pioneer in performance art. Since the 1960’s, she has explored how artistic ritual, often staged as individual interactions or collaborative workshops, can be used to enhance a person's daily life, to create the opportunity for attentional spiritual energy states, to encourage inner silence and to alter the cessation of art/life boundaries. Montano's work can be viewed at www.lindamontano.com, as well on her blog and on YouTube.
JACK is a new arts venue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, with a mission to provide radical access to the arts by presenting adventurous performance work and by involving as many members of the surrounding community as possible in the art we create.
