LINDA MARY MONTANO AS A CLASS & LIVING SCULPTURE



LINDA MARY MONTANO: AS A CLASS & LIVING SCULPTURE

A concept that can be adapted to your situation, site and interpretation.


This class is dedicated to the life-work of performance artist Montano who began her career as a sculptor and considers herself to be a LIVING SCULPTURE.

Students will dissect Montano's life and art from many sculptural vantage points:

1. HER BOOKS: ART IN EVERYDAY LIFE; PERFORMANCE ARTISTS TALKING IN THE 80'S; MILDRED'S DEATH; LETTERS FROM LINDA MARY MONTANO; UPDATED ART IN EVERYDAY LIFE titled; YOU TOO ARE A PERFORMANCE ARTIST.

2. HER WEBSITE: WWW.LINDAMONTANO.COM

3. HER BLOG: LINDA MONTANO BLOG

4. HER 30 VIDEOS: YOU TUBE

All of this research will prepare the students to curate and prepare a retrospective of Montano's past present and future sculpture and see it's interdependence with her performances and videos.


Some students will scan past slides and negatives of Montano's sculptures.
Some will learn how to ship existing works to the site of the sculpture retrospective.

Some will study in depth 14 YEARS OF LIVING ART and will research the video SHHH on You Tube, by Montano and learn how to present this performative installation (sculpture ) in the gallery.
Some will curate the placement and historical evolution of the work.
Some will prepare an extensive catalogue with essays about Montano's sculpture and how her philosophy, vision and spiritual message is inherent in this work which posits the ephemerality of the non-ephemeral and its relation to her performances.
Some will re-create and build past sculptures: (1.THE MFA CHICKEN SHOW; 2.THE CHICKEN/ANGEL BED, 3.ROOM WHERE I LIVED FOR 5 DAYS AS 5 PEOPLE AND MAYBE RE-ENACTING THAT, 4.HYPNOSIS/DREAM/SLEEP INSTALLATION; 5. ART/LIFE COUNSELING ROOM AND MAYBE RE-ENACT THAT; 6. TREADMILL STORY OF MY LIFE; 7. CHICKEN DANCE AND SITTING WITH MANEQUIN)
Some will place the images, essays and their own processes online as a blog, therby outlining the practice of getting to know an artist , studying this artist intensely and then presenting this artist's work (sculpture) as a class project.
Some will curate vitrines of objects from performances, small sculptures and ceramic sculptures.

The professor will write the introduction to the catalogue and oversee this entire process.

Montano will be available for Skype conferencing and workshops throughout the process.
