In Process: Margaret Fisher / Jill Scott / Peter Wiehl
Streaming, for free, at inprocessprojects.com: December 3 – 16, 2020
Margaret Fisher (California), Jill Scott (Zurich), and Peter Wiehl (Connecticut) overlapped in time in the San Francisco in the mid-late 1970s, all active in directing and/or performing at artist-run spaces. From a warehouse building wall to the shorelines, these durational early pieces were performed in public. This program considers how these artists experimented at the time with the form that film or video documentation of performance could take, as a composed piece in itself. In more recent years, they have each revisited and transferred these works.
