Good afternoon everyone from Festival TransAmeriques in Montreal — funny that I’ve just arrived in Canada where I am catching up on this sad news.

As my parents, Tim and Renate, have said, Arthur and Marilouise were a part of our family circle for years. I fondly remember for empyre times with them both in Ithaca. As a child I didn’t understand Marilouise’s work, but more her amazing affect and attention to details. Later in life I discovered hers and Arthur’s work while in graduate school where I discovered how the sharpness of Marilouise’s scholarship matched her personality and style so perfectly. I could hear her voice through her work. I know that presence will live on — it certainly continues to vibrate through the fabrics of my curatorial practice at EMPAC.

Thinking of you dear Marilouise,


Ashley Ferro-Murray
Curator of Dance and Performance
