Marthe Ramm Fortun Artist Class
- Wednesday, November 13, 3:00 pm
Marthe Ramm Fortun presents a talk on structured improvisation and the implications of working in public space. The artist’s recent experiences performing at Grand Central Terminal and her subsequent dialogue with the Metropolitan Transit Authority serve as a prism for understanding the methods she employs when working in the public realm, including observing a specific venue in a historical, institutional, and political context, and approaching the people who spend time working, loitering, or living in a certain environment, treating these existing structures as her formal parameters.
