Studio Visit is Guernica’s new interview series where we talk with artists in their work spaces. In this debut video, artist and curator Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich visits Legacy Russell to hear about her ongoing performance project in New York City’s East Village called Open Ceremony.
To see more of Russell’s work, visit this issue’s art feature, John Is No More.
Legacy Russell is a writer, artist, and curator. She has worked at and produced programs for The Bruce High Quality Foundation, Creative Time, the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney, and the Met. Her work explores mourning, remembrance, iconography, and idolatry within the public realm. She was interviewed about her performance project in New York City’s East Village and Lower East Side, Open Ceremony, for Guernica’s studio visit series, and her work has been featured in Guernica’s art section.
