Participatory Walk Todd Shalom: Might Friday, September 28, 5:00pm – open to BU students only Saturday, September 29, 2:00pm & 5:00pm In this participatory walk, New York-based artist and Boston University alumnus, Todd Shalom, leads a group through a series of prompted actions across the Boston University campus. Incorporating elements of photography, performance art, acoustic ecology, activism, and poetry, participants will investigate and intervene in the daily life of the University’s campus and its variously defined communities.The walk is open to everyone and all abilities. No previous performance experience required. Note from Todd: I graduated from Boston University as a marketing major twenty years ago. Within a year, I started to come out––as gay and as an artist. I’m nostalgic for my past, although I wonder how college would have been had I come out sooner. Returning to campus, this walk gives closure. In Might, we will celebrate together our individual and collective uniqueness while questioning the University’s physical and psychological spaces. This is the walk I needed twenty years ago, but too scared to attend!. This walk holds 12 people and lasts approximately 90 minutes. Starting point will be the Faye G., Jo, and James Stone Gallery. Please arrive 15 minutes pre-walk time. The walk will start punctually. Reservations are required.
