I'm celebrating my 50th birthday this year...
As much as things change, they stay the same.

Public reading of On Kawara's "One Million Years"
at Dia:Beacon, May 18-19, 2013

Conceived in 1969, this work was first presented as a performance piece in 1993 at Dia Center for the Arts, with participants reading aloud dates going into the past and the future. A man and woman take turns reading a progressive series of dates, encompassing 1,000,000 years. During the time I read, we started at year 911,338 BC and got as far as we could in an hour. More information about On Kawara can be found here https://diaart.org/program/exhibitions-projects/on-kawara-one-thousand-days-one-million-years-chelsea-exhibition

Part of the Whitney's 2012 Biennial

Choreographer Michael Clark engaged both professional dancers and untrained volunteers (of which I was one) during his Biennial residency. We spent 2-weeks learning the pieces, which culminated with a series of public performances. It was an amazing experience.

"I will not make any more boring art"
by John Baldessari
1971/2010

I was part of a team that re-performed John Baldessari's "I will not make a more boring art" at the Whitney Museum's "Off the Wall" exhibition. We covered 2 large walls, floor to ceiling, with this phrase for the duration of the show. I always loved this piece. It was a treat to be a part of it. Here's a short video about the piece featuring Curator Chrissie Iles http://whitney.org/WatchAndListen/Artists?context=&context_id=&play_id=310

I have been part of this great group of artists since 2003. We get together monthly to review each others work. Although our membership has evolved over the years the conversation is consistently thought-provoking and dinner is always delicious.

In the fall of 2000 I assisted in the production of wall drawings for Sol LeWitt's retrospective at the Whitney Museum. This is a picture with Sol, staff and drawing team standing on "Double Pyramid" in the sculpture court at the opening.
