LINDA MARY MONTANO:  TALKS ABOUT MARILYN ARSEM


I just recently, 2016, had the opportunity to be with Marilyn Arsem for a few days at Jill McDermid and Hoke’s Rosekill Farm, performance site in Rosendale NY. It was a reunion of the  Crone-elders: Marilyn Arsem, Martha Wilson, Annie Sprinkle, Beth Stephens, Veronica Vera and myself plus many young Brooklyn performance artists. I “tied” myself to 3 people while there for 3 hours: Annie&Beth (together), Veronica and Marilyn. It was a fabulous experience each time. But this is about Marilyn and I report that being tied with her was like being tied to light and love and kindness incarnate. Marilyn is a work of beauty, a work of art-life, a woman open to smiles. She performs by living gently and Taoistically. I LOVE HER. Let’s get tied again Marilyn,(and Annie, ,Beth and Veronica too!) Love always, Linda
