Goodbye, Farewell. Live Performance, 24-Hour Telecast. 2012.


The 24-hour broadcast of Goodbye, Farewell reenacts scenes from the final episode of M*A*S*H, "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen" (1983), as a platform for addressing the racial and gendered gaps existing between the physical spaces of "real" versus televised time. In one space, the artists read scenes from the episode, commonly regarded as the most watched TV episode in United States history, inviting participants to join in as they pass through. In a separate space, a live video feed of the reading is installed on the gallery wall, projecting the formalization and routinization of closure.
