SEE WWW.LINDAMONTANO.COM (ART/LIFE STORY)FOR MORE ABOUT MONTANO.

Linda Mary Montano, a seminal figure in contemporary feminist performance art, has been actively exploring her art/life since the mid 1960s. Her work investigates the relationship between art and life through intricate life altering ceremonies, some of which last for seven or more years. She is interested in the way artistic ritual, often staged as individual interactions or collaborative workshops, can be used to alter and enhance a person's life and to create the opportunity for focus on spiritual energy > states, silence and the cessation of art/life boundaries. > For more about Montano go to www.lindamontano.com
