In the Fall of 2017, I was invited to be the inaugural Creative Artist-in-Residence at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I brought over 40 artists together to activate galleries through performance art, music, and dance.
The creative residency featured nine curated evenings of performance, including three world premier musical arrangements, multi-gallery "pop-up" tours, immersive movement workshops, and several outdoor performances on the museum's campus.
Eight of the nine events were specifically curated to engage museum patrons on Wednesday evenings, aligning with the museum's policy to waive admission fee to provide free access to the public.
The residency culminated in two evening-length concerts, one featuring an evening dedicated to the work of Boston-local, composer, Tony Schemmer, and the final culminating performance in the Koch Gallery with newly commissioned dance work set to pieces by Rachmaninoff, Cage, and Arnold Schönberg's epic string sextet, Verklärte Nacht.
