FUNGUS AMONG US with Margit Galanter and Abby Crain is an ArtWORKOUTS participatory discussion and workshop event comprised of mycromedial-based performance, word, and dance experiments.
Mycelium is the rich complex root system that underlies mushroom fruit. Incredibly sensitive, it is an interconnected, mobile, shapeshifting, underground, sentient, & communicative realm. Mycelia breathe in oxygen and breathe out CO2– more like us than any other creature. What can we learn from them, in art-making? In this laboratory, we will try out some physical experiments prompted by the phenomena of this brilliant beast and some artists who take inspiration in the fungus among us.
Inspired and prompted by Emji Spero and Sophia Wang, informed by the research of mycologists and interventions of these local myco-philes.
ArtWORKOUTS is an ongoing dialogue and experiment between Margit Galanter and Abby Crain which moves between embodied discourse, practice and research.
