"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
UPDATE: Archived versions of both performances are viewable on Storify:
The artist performed her first Twitter reading from @Art21 on October 26, 2012 (see the archived performance on Storify).
Through posts of 140 characters or less, the artist will "read" stanzas of a story from her memoir, Conversations with Stalin, before continuing with the remaining two of four New York-based performances. The artist encourages audience participation throughout, and will respond to questions submitted by audience members following the live Twitter "reading."
Already have a question for the artist? Feel free to send them in the via comments below or via Twitter at any time ahead of the performance.
