Exploring New Sides to Performance Art: “Responding to Site” on Marilyn Arsem

I never really got a handle on what performance art was compared to other performing arts, until I read Responding to Site: The Performance Work of Marilyn Arsem, edited by Jennie Klein and Natalie Loveless about the incredible work of Marilyn Arsem. Starting and ending the book is a reprint of Marilyn Arsem’s 2011 manifesto “This is Performance Art” that attempts to articulate what exactly performance art is. Unlike theater, music and dance, performance art “exists on the same plane as those who witness it” and performance artists are “no one other than themselves.” The artists don’t pretend to be actors, nor do they pretend the audience is not there. There’s no stage with music or dance; everyone is on the same footing.

Semi-Documentary 'Wild Style' Is An Essential Look At The Subculture Of 1980s Hip-Hop

There’s gonna be a heck of a lawn party on Huntington Avenue this Sunday night, as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston celebrates the closing weekend of their marvelous “Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation” exhibit with a free outdoor screening of “Wild Style.” Director Charlie Ahearn’s seminal 1982 semi-documentary about an aspiring young graffiti artist and the breakers and b-boys he runs with is widely acknowledged as the first (and best) hip-hop movie ever made, though they weren’t even calling it “hip-hop” yet back then. Shot on a shoestring in the South Bronx and on the Lower East Side, it’s an essential, ebullient look at a subculture about to explode into the mainstream. Ahearn and his artistic collaborator/partner-in-crime Fab 5 Freddy will be in attendance at the screening. You should be, too.

STL GLD record an ‘Extra’ special project at the Peabody Essex Museum

The track comes paired with a mini-documentary on the making of the song, cramming three days’ worth of work into a 18-minute sprint.

3 Days by Superyacht in the Bay State

When spending the summer in New England, most megayacht owners and charter clients think of Newport, Nantucket, and ports in Maine. But there is so much more to discover and enjoy. We asked Ann Lagasse, owner of Ocean Havens waterfront destinations in Massachusetts, why her home of the Bay State deserves more attention. Therefore, “3 Days by Superyacht in the Bay State” focus on her favorite destinations of Boston, Provincetown, and Gloucester Harbor. They’re in close proximity to each other—50 miles, to be exact—but, Lagasse asserts, the experiences at each are worlds apart.
