Marcy B. Freedman’s got a full plate

We recently advanced the Collaborative Concepts’ annual Farm Project, which continues through Oct. 28 at Saunders Farm in Garrison.

As mentioned, Croton-on-Hudson performance artist and art historian Marcy B. Freedman is again the curator of performance art for the project.

Ever busy, Freedman shares more of her fall schedule:

  • Freedman has been involved in the creation of a large series of digital prints called “FemFlora: Images for a World in which Women and Plants Flourish.” The work is to be featured at Echo, at 470 Main St. in Beacon as part of “Windows on Main Street,” from Sept. 22 through Nov. 12.
  • Freedman will ride the Staten Island Ferry Oct. 1 as part of this year’s Apres Avant Garde Festival, hosted by Day de Dada, the Staten Island Performance Art Collective. Dressed as the Statue of Liberty, she will present “How Strong is Our Democracy Now?” She tells us the event will serve as a follow-up of sorts to her interactive work, “TRUE of FALSE: We are at a crucial point in the history of the USA,” offered in August at the opening reception of “RADIUS 50” at Woodstock Artists Association and Museum.
  • Freedman has created a brand new work of art, “Don’t Worry, Breast Happy,” that will have its debut in the “Bosom Bodies” group exhibition running Oct. 7-29 – in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month – at SIA Gallery in Peekskill.
  • And, in November, Freedman will combine art and art history in a program called “What the heck is performance art and why should anyone care?” She will present the work at 2 p.m. Nov. 12 at Talking Arts Foundation in Yorktown. As she tells us, “I will strive to educate and entertain the members of my audience with several re-enactments of famous performance art pieces from the past along with a couple of new solo performances of my own. It will be exciting to put my personal work into an art historical context.”
