WCMA at Night
Artist Mark Parsons
Thursday, Oct 8
Mark Parsons turns publicly authored content into collaboratively executed wall drawings. He choreographs the process through carefully crafted public invitations, sharing and in turn reclaiming creative agency.
At WCMA, Parsons offers up a selfie stick and a specific set of instructions as tools to generate new content. He converts visitors’ selfies with LeWitt’s soon-to-be-deinstalled #959 into a composite portrait. And At WCMA at Night, he invites you to draw it on the wall.
