CHICKENED-BOOKS/YOUR STUDENTS/LINDA MARY MONTANO/PERFORMING ART-LIFE AND ASSIGNMENT BELOW
BACKSTORY: While taking care of my father at home, I found over 100 books in the house(all kinds plus some of my books) and drew chickens on them. Then what to do? Had all of these books and I asked wonderful Laurence McGilvery, book seller, if he wanted
to sell them. We sold some but now I want to find a way for all of them to find a home.
WHAT: I have chosen a few professors teaching performance art and history of performance or my work if they want to do this:
You invite me as a visiting "skype" artist. And this happens:
I give your students a performance art assignment from my online archive etc. via email that you send them.
We meet as a group in your classroom, on skype, and your students describe to all of us what they performed.
Laurence mails you approximately 20 chicken/drawn art-books which you RESELL? GIVE AS A GIFT TO A COLLEGE ROOMMATE? GIVE TO YOUR STUDENTS? KEEP AND DONATE TO YOUR ARCHIVE? PERFORM WITH IT YOURSELF?
Your institute(not you) sends me just $200.
I will contact as many professors as I can and choose 5 of you who are interested in doing this "art-life performance." If you wish send to someone who would also like to participate????
WHAT DO YOU GET? Of course the choice to keep all of the books PLUS one emailed
YOU ARE A SAINT CERTIFICATE
WHY? FOR TAKING TIME/TROUBLE TO COORDINATE 400,000 EMAIL CONVERSATIONS AND TEXTS WITH ME AND YOUR STUDENTS.
GIVEN YOUR BUSY LIFE, ART AND TEACHING OUTREACH, YOU WILL BE BEYOND SAINTHOOD WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR DOOR AND MIND TO YET ANOTHER "INVITATION" FROM THE UNIVERSE .
