Presented by FADO Performance Art Centre
McMurry’s recent performance installation works are a part of the Ego series and have been presented in Thailand, USA, Scotland and France. Taking place over many hours in a small space, these performances allow for only a few viewers to see the ongoing work for a short period of time, leaving audiences with only a fraction of a glance into the biography being depicted, similar to how we encounter one another’s biographies in everyday life. With Ranchero, McMurry continues to share this language of one’s history through performative acts but instead of having the viewer pass through the work, the work will pass through the viewer.
Jamie McMurry has been an active artist, educator and organizer in the fields of performance, installation, video and conceptual art for more than 15 years. He teaches at Art Center College of Design Pasadena and lives in Los Angeles, USA with his wife and three daughters.
