Drinking Beer [& breaking bread] with Friends, homage to Tom Marioni
“Live Video” by R Ferris 2010
Presented at Asterisk Gallery Show: "Referential – Homage, Montage, Sabotage" curated by Cynthia Penter
I happened upon a Tom Marioni Salon at SFMOMA in early 2009. Who would have dreamed that an august art museum would sponsor an evening of beer drinking & talking and call it art?
Connections were made. Art was distilled, torn apart and birthed. I was changed.
My interest in participations was urged to grow. Exploring the disintermediation of artist and viewer. Throwing both into a joint experience of art creation. Cutting out the middle man; cutting out the art object.
May we engage.
