From 1998 to 2016, Amy Stacey Curtis (b. 1970, Beverly, Massachusetts) completed an 18-year commitment to interactive installation art, 9 solo-biennial exhibits of large-in-scope, participatory works in 9 vast mill spaces throughout Maine, USA.
In the end, Curtis mounted 81 installations in 8 Maine towns while cleaning by hand each historic space (averaging 25,000 square feet). Each solo biennial was a 22-month process exploring a different theme, inviting audience to perpetuate and resolve each exhibit’s 9 unique works.
Curtis posts weekly to The Artist Plan, previously writing about completing her 18-year opus. In 2017, she’s discussing what’s next, and how she feels working without an 18-year plan.
