Paige Tighe – Mar Vista – 11/02/2012

Paige Tighe, past Ben Maltz Curatorial Fellow and recent graduate of the Otis Public Practice program, has a lot of compelling projects in the works.  Not only is she in the collaborative, performative, karaoke threesome Pedestal and the All Girl Band…. but she is also in the midst of a handholding experiential art project, Walk With ME, where she takes one-on-one walks with both strangers and friends and experiences the act of holding hands, sharing feelings and sharing energies.  Like most of her performance work, Tighe is enticed with, “exposing what (she) can’t expose in the everyday”.  Tighe reports that each time, no matter how close the relationship is prior to the walk, “each one finds a comfortable space.”
