Beyond borders–Philadelphia art in new territories

From the wilds of Brooklyn, to the Texas Wild West to the wilderness reconstructed in Chelsea, Philadelphia art is on the move. Here’s what we got:

Michelle Wilson will turn herself into a scapegoat, Sat., Sept. 19 to take on the burdens of the audience’s worries, guilt, pressures and tensions. The interactive performance “Modern Day Scapegoat Services” involves written confessions that will become part of a book to be delivered into the wilderness.

All of this takes place in Fritz Haeg’s Literary Dome, installed in the old Dia Foundation space that is now X-Initiative.

Wilson also has shows soon at Chashama in New York and Kunst Vault Space in Sliver Spring, MD.

Gallery Joe owner Becky Kerlin is giving a talk, Trends in Paper Works, at Texas State University on September 21st. She is totally an expert in the field, as we here in Philadelphia all know, and if you heard her talk about drawing at the late lamented Jenny Jaskey Gallery, you know she’s got a lot of really great stuff to say.
