MFA Candidates Thayer and Ryan First Friday Performance #doyoufollow

Published September 10, 2013

wmc1011On Friday, September 6th, 2013, MFA candidates Courtney Thayer and Craig Ryan presented their installation and performance piece, entitled “#doyoufollow”. The event took place at the Working Method Contemporary gallery in the Railroad Square Art Park, during the busy First Friday community and art event that happens each month.

The performance began at 6:30 pm and finished approximately two hours later at 8:30 pm. This interactive installation featured the two artists suspended in the air wearing harnesses in a room separate from view of the audience save for five peepholes located on the wall that divides the two rooms. There was, however, a live feed of the artists that streamed on a television in the same room as the audience. First Friday goers, FSU faculty, students, and alum alike came to peer through the peepholes to see the performance from all angles.

This was the Working Method Contemporary gallery’s final exhibition at the Railroad Square location as they are moving to the Carnaghi Arts Building very soon.

The Working Method Contemporary is an art space provided by the Florida State University Department of Art to the approximately thirty graduate students pursuing a Master’s Degree in Studio Art. The gallery is completely student volunteer run, and operates as a non-commercial space dedicated to showing recent works and collaborations by current students. Each First Friday of every month the gallery opens a new exhibition, to include a variety of media from paintings and sculpture to video and installation art. For more information you can visit:
